    My go-to PFD

    The Bluejacket has been my go-to PFD for years. The side-entry is easier on my tweaky shoulder than a pullover life jacket but still offers full coverage protection. I also like that just can adjust the length up or down, which is handy when I switch from kayaking to SUP. The hydration bladder sleeve is key for long summer days or multi-day trips.
