Inflatable fishing vest. Looking for recommendations.

5 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

I am looking to purchase a CO2 inflatable fishing vest to use during wading out on the rivers.  There are a few brands I have searched online and wanted to see if I can get some feedback.  There are the Sterns inflatable fishing vest, and the Mustang Survival.  

Please let me know if there are other brands that you would recommend.

 

Thank you,

WHat about a waist pack.. I wear one in the yak and sketchy areas.  During the summer I'd imagine they'd be a bit toasty

I started looking at Cabelas and BassPro and now searching online.  The Mustang Survival Fishing Vest was the one I pulled the trigger yesterday as it seems to fit the build, plenty of pockets and the mesh backing to allow for some circulation.  Now if it's unbearable I would need to look into a waist pack.

 

Thank you guys for the feedback.

TMeng:  Just to note that if you are disoriented and/or unconscious will this vest inflate buy getting wet??  Also, will it hold your head above water?  Some do that and might be worth checking out.
