Went life jacket shopping the other day at West Marine and I was surprized to see how many of the 30-50lb range are the type III type. My kid is not even 2 and doesn't fit into the <30lb jacket anymore but he definitely can't swim yet, so he needs the self-righting one.

They didn't have the lil legends in his size, so we ordered it on faith (from Amazon) on the nearly unanimous recommendations.


I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
