UFloat - anyone tried it?

Recommended Posts

Since wearing a PFD is an important part of fishing on the water, has anyone used one of these or seen it?  It's called the UFloat and is Coast Guard approved. 

Looks like it'd be great for fishing as there's no restriction of arm motion since it's essentially upside-down.

Obviously, you look a bit of a goober since it looks like a giant diaper, but...  Seems like a good idea!

I do that with a regular life jacket to float around when it gets hot out. I've even fished while floating like that. It's not the most comfortable thing. I'd take an inflatable way before I'd wear that thing.

I have my doubts about that thing being able to float you face up if you're unconscious in the water, due to basic physics.  So no, I'd leave that one to a plaything.

I'm more interested in a PFD that will float me face up and keep my head out of the water if I'm unconscious.  That thing doesn't look like it will do that.  I'll go with the tried and true PFD that has the bulk of the flotation on your chest with a flotation collar behind your head.

I'm not quite old enough to use Depends, yet.

Kinda looks like a bullet proof pair of depends.  Good to have if some jealous husband comes after you.

That isn't gonna save you if you're knocked unconscious, which is the main point of wearing a PFD, in my opinion.

Flotation diapers are more of a recreation thing and are realy more designed with the idea of weak swimmers using them. Leave life saving devices to traditional pdfs or inflatable ones, you need something that will keep your head up if you are unconscious.
