Life Jackets / PFD

Boat Life Jackets and Personal Flotation Devices

On your boat, life jackets, inflatable life vests, and personal flotation devices (PFDs) are the most important pieces of equipment. IE Boat Supplies carries an extensive stock of jackets and PFDs for every member of the family-pets included! Select from Onyx, O’Brien, HO Sports, Connelly, Hyperlite, and Texas Recreation. We proudly carry a variety of vest sizes at very competitive prices.

While regulations vary state by state, the United States Coast Guard has a requirement that there be an appropriately-sized life jacket for everyone on board and recommends that they be worn at all times. IE Boat Supplies has your entire boat crew covered with high-performance life jackets, inflatable life vests, and personal flotation devices (PFDs) for men, women, teens, youth, children, infants, and dogs.

U.S. Coast Guard Approved Life Jackets

When selecting a U.S. Coast Guard Approved life jacket, consider the type of water you’ll be in and what activities you may be doing. Type I life jackets are the most buoyant and are ideal for situations where rescue may be slow. Type II life jackets are better suited for calm inland waters or for boating near-shore. For water sports and other activities, consider a Type III jacket for its superior range of motion.

Note on Life Jacket labeling:

  • Life jackets labeled has Harmonized Approval means that they are approved by both the US Coast Guard and Transport Canada. 
  • Under the new approval system, Type III life jackets are slowly transitioning to being designated as "Level 70" buoyancy aids.

If your job requires commercial life jackets, float coats, or work suits, visit IE Boat Supplies online for the best selection at guaranteed low prices. While onboard storage should be a consideration, it is important to not compromise your safety. We carry inflatable life vests in various styles, sizes, and colors. We haven’t forgotten about the fisherman or kayaker.
