Mustang Survival Deluxe Automatic Inflatable Life Vest
Just what I needed
I have for a long time not wore a life jacket because it was not required. I purchased the auto life vest and thought I would give it a try. I agreed with my spouse that when I am in the boat that I would wear a life vest, but they are bulky and not easy to fish in. The Bass Pro Mustang series was just what I needed, light weight and comfortable to fish in. I am 60 years old and now I feel safe even when I fish by myself. I would highly recommend this product to all boat owners, especially fishermen.

Works as advertised
I checked out many life jackets for fishing. This one is perfect. You don't even know you have it on. I'm 6'2 and weight 240, very comfortable, and not restrictive at all. I fish Lake Erie,and Lake Ontario. Usually 2-3 ft waves. I was worried about the spray coming from the bow hitting the life jacket, and possible inflation. I got covered with spray, and it did not inflate as advertised. Also I like the colors of the jacket, at least if you do go in the water, the Coast Guard will be able to find you. Excellent product. I cost a little more than others, but I guess you get what you pay for. Happy Fishing.Also, Im the same guy who hates to wear a bulky life vest, you won't be disappointed with this one. Trust me.

This inflatable is indeed comfortable to wear and most of the time I do forget I have it on. However, you do feel the weight on your shoulders which can be a little tiring with 12 hours straight on the water. In temps over 80 degrees it makes my neck sweat a little so I will take if off periodically in hot weather, but even then I always wear it when running. Having said that, it's still much better than any other PFD I've tried.
I was worried about rain prematurely activating it, but I fish in rain a lot and it's never a problem with this type of inflator.
Highly recommended - watch for the fathers day sale.

flotation device purchase
My wife recently purchased for me the Mustang Flotation device and it is the most comfortable life jacket I have ever worn. Does not take up a lot of room in the boat and is very easy to put on and take off.
