    It's crucial that a Jetpilot life jacket fits snugly against your skin, but not so snugly that breathing becomes challenging. Although your Jetpilot life jacket may seem awkward at first, it will make much more sense and feel very comfortable once it is wet. There is a potential that the vest will become too big and move once you are in the water if you are not stretching it to finish the zipper. A poorly fitting jacket might reduce the safety features in addition to the potential for becoming wet. Read more below on choosing the appropriate life jacket.

    Choosing The Appropriate Jetpilot Life Jacket

    Jetpilot life jackets are available in a wide variety of colours, sizes, and fits, so it's critical to choose one that meets your individual requirements. There are a few important considerations to make while selecting a life jacket:

    • You should wear a jacket that is both snug and comfortable on you so that it won't shift about when you use it in the water.
    • The most typical method for sizing a life jacket is to take a measurement around the thickest region of your chest and compare it to the measurements specified on the vest. All our products have size charts and size calculators to help you find the right size for you. Alternatively, visit one of our stores where our staff can help find the right life jacket for you.
    • It might be challenging to find the ideal fit for children. First verify the weight rating, then check for a snug fit around the waist and shoulders because a tight fit is essential for the jacket to be safe. When considering larger than necessary sizes or longer adult jacket styles for children, exercise caution. It is unsafe to wear a vest with the zip fastened at the hips rather than the waist since it will allow too much area for the shoulders. While we all want to make the most of our equipment, safety is always the top concern.
    • If you’re looking for more information on types of Life Jackets such as L50, see Types of Life Jackets at the bottom of this article.
    • You need a jacket with the features necessary for its intended function. For instance, a jacket with handles will allow any passengers on a sit-down jet ski something to grip onto, enhancing their safety.
    • The life jacket is too big if more than three fingers can fit between your shoulders and the vest. In an emergency, the vest won't be able to hold your head above water if it's too big.
    • To guarantee that you can float effectively in an emergency, make sure the neck part or collar does not sit up over your head. Instead, it should sit just above your shoulders.

    Styles & Types of Life Jackets in Australia

    Styles & Types of Life Jackets

    No matter your anticipated destination and activities while on the water, you need to invest in a quality life jacket. Life jackets that meet Australian standards are L50 (PFD Type 2), L50S (PFD Type 3), or L100 (PFD TYPE1) are the most common. The cut and fit of the vest are equally as important as the materials used to create it. Always remember that the rating of a life jacket, as well as other important information like the weight rating, which may be located on the inside panel. This will be checked by the authorities if they stop you on your boat, so be sure to wear an approved life jacket avoid a fine!

    There are three primary types of life vests:

    Level 50S Life Jackets (PFD TYPE 3)

    Level 50S or L50s life jackets, are only to be used in smooth water, and will keep you safe in most rivers, lakes, and dams. These life jackets are the most frequently utilised because waterskiing, wakeboarding, tubing, and wakesurfing are typically done in calm water. They are not colour-restricted and come in a wide range of colours and designs.

    Level 50 Life Jackets (PFD TYPE 2)

    In both smooth and moderately smooth rivers, it is legal to wear a life jacket that is an LEVEL 50 due to the fact that they may be used in open waterways as well. They are well like by jetskiers and operators of Personal Water Crafts (PWCs). The main difference between an L50 and an L50S life jackets are the colours. L50 life vests are required to be brightly coloured, with the shoulders typically being red, yellow, or orange, in accordance with Australian Standards. Despite the fact that you don't have a lot of colour options, jetskiers should purchase an L50 life vest since it will legally protect you for practically anywhere you wish to travel on a jetski, including offshore. Many L50 life vests come equipped with the amazing jetski features like grab handles and lower back support.

    Level 100, 150, or 275 (PFD TYPE 1) Life Jackets

    For the purposes of jetskiing or any other towable water sport, a life jacket with the designation level 100, 150, or 275 (PFD TYPE 1) is not permitted. They are designed to be used on boats, so they may be taken offshore in Open Waterways. Because these life jackets are only appropriate for regular boating on open water and cannot be used for jet skiing or other water sports, they are not usually stocked at Auski.

    It is up to each state to decide how to classify rivers in Australia, so be sure to check the relevant website to find out which life jacket you should wear.

    Styles of Life Jackets

    Make sure you select a life jacket that will match your specific needs even though they all float equally. If you usually waterski, a low-profile life jacket will keep out of the way on starts and provide you flexibility in your arms. Look for life jackets with a 4-panel design so that the foam may be dispersed more evenly through the front, back, and sides. If you intend to go skiing in the winter, some life vests also have quick-dry insulation on the inside. A lightweight life jacket may also be adequate for wakeboarding, but you'll be more protected in accidents with something bulkier.

    If you're on a jetski, think about your favourite water sports. If you're doing lengthy journeys or carrying the kids around all day, a life jacket with a kidney belt and grab handles will come in handy. Alternatively, if freestyle jetskiing is more your style, you might choose to use a side entrance vest that provides extra chest protection.
