Another thing you have to remember is that a PFD and a life jacket are NOT the same thing.
1. A PFD is less bulky and less buoyant than a lifejacket.
2. A PFD may not roll a person into a position where their head is out of water. A lifejacket will hold the wearer in an upright position and in most cases, will roll a person from a face-down to a face-up position.
3. A PFD is preferred for active sports such as canoeing or fishing because it is more flexible.
4. Canadian-approved PFDs come in a variety of colours, such as blue, purple and black, whereas Canadian-approved lifejackets must be red, yellow or orange.
For my kids, I prefer they be in a life jacket as their heads will be held out of the water and even rolled onto their backs. If my kid got knocked unconscious and fell into the water, a PFD is only going to keep her floating and if that's face down, that's how she'll stay.
