Does anyone know the best life jacket for a white water guide to have?

I feel this is examining the situation too closely. But it always comes
down to the circumstances at hand.

Seems to me that those two sentences contradict each other. If it
comes down to the circumstances at hand, then those circumstances
are worth examining with a thought to choosing the most appropriate
tool -- especially since you'll probabl slap down $100 for it, and
especially since it may have to save your life.

Actually, they were meant to be complimentary. For most folks, the
"extras" in the previous post just aren't necessary; they want
functionality (bouancy) and need nothing else.

If it
comes down to the circumstances at hand, then those circumstances
are worth examining with a thought to choosing the most appropriate
tool -- especially since you'll probabl slap down $100 for it, and
especially since it may have to save your life.



Pockets, lash tabs, etc., may be desireable for some, but they're not
crucial to the PFD's prime role of affording bouancy.
