Manual or automatic lifejackets?

Date : 2017-06-13

Leave the manual only lifejackets for pilots. When a plane ditches in the sea a pilot needs to escape before inflating his lifejacket to avoid being trapped.

Many chandlers will happily sell you a manual only lifejacket. Why? - Because they are cheaper, they dont have the automatic inflator, so they are slightly cheaper to produce.

Believe us the last thing you need to worry about in a survival situation is manually activating your life jacket inflator!

Imagine getting knocked unconcious on the way into the water, not uncommon on a yacht, if you were unconcious a manual life jacket will do nothing for you.

Pay the extra few pounds and get an automatic lifejacket.
