I am going to wake up this old topic rather than making a new one.
After many years of owning a manual Sospenders inflatable I got myself Mustang autoinflatable PFD last year. Today I decided to test it in a bathtub
- see if it actually inflates (better find out now than if I have to use it).
Well, sure enough it inflated nicely - but here is the problem. It sits nicely on me when packed, but when inflated the damn neckhole is so tiny it almost choked me. And I wore it on my bare neck essentially. Were I wearing my foul weather jacket - that would be it.
Now, how do I find an inflatable PFD that will be reasonably sized and won't close off my air pipes? I can't actually inflate them in store, can I?
Any advice would be welcome.
