Hey all

I am looking for a non inflatable Offshore Lifejacket (Type 1).


Some thing that is low maintenance. I do not want to fiddle with co2

Comfortable
adjustable.
pockets would be nice.

decent price.


Some thing like this but rated type 1
Stearns Versatile Commercial / Work Life Jacket / PFD


does any one have any suggestion.

Much obliged!

They don't exist. Because of the requirements to meet Type 1 classification they have to be large and bulky. They are almost never worn except once abandoning ship becomes a serious reality and even then inflatables are generally prefered.

Yep. They don't exist. It seems an inflatable is the only way to get low profile AND at least 33 lb of lift. My thought, because I live in an area that's pretty cold, is to get a float coat and a good form fitting inflatable. Best of both worlds in my opinion. Won't work in the tropics though.....

Do you need a Type 1 for OSHA? Curious why you are focused on this type.

Re: Offshore Lifejacket (Type 1).

The only reason that you might want a type 1 is if you are taking passengers for hire in US waters. Even if you take one passenger you must have a type 1 for each passenger and crew member aboard. There is some ratio of adult to child's type 1 aboard if you are chartering, but I've forgotten it. Contact USCG or the CFR's for the exact regs.
