Does anyone use belt PFDs?

I've generally thought these things are hokey and useless, but I have to admit, looking back at my boating career so far, I have spent much more time without a PFD on than with. I'm getting better about it, but I wonder if one of these might help. Or, maybe they're useless....

Anyone use them? Seems like the cats meow in warmer climates.

Hmm. I like the idea of them for the dinghy and those hot, flat, calm days on the Chesapeake.

I wish I could try one or at least see one inflated before I buy any though.
