Coldwater is on a distinguished road
I got so used to wearing a PFD while river and sea kayaking, that I feel naked without it. I sail a small 22' racing boat with a low freeboard in fairly cold water, so a PFD seems wise. Plus, it is a nice layer of insulation in cold wind. On hot days I just dunk once in a while.
