Re: Recommendations needed - baby/infant PFD and harnesses
Baltic is the best. When we lived in Europe we saw a UK Lifeboats show where they tested kid/infant pfd's. They tested with nappies (diapers) on which is critical due to the added weight when wet. Hands down Baltic won every category. So for our three grand kids we have an baby/toddler model, and two +3 models.
Of coarse you can't get them in the US and have to order from the UK. Worth it! Top quality. We always get comments from other boaters on how well designed they are.
Thanks Kellysails. We might consider them for the next round. They look really nice, including some with softer fabrics, etc. for more comfort. The only thing is them not being Coast Guard approved, so we'd have to carry a spare approved version in order to be "legal", even if they are a superior product. Is that what you do, or was that even a concern?
