Response Automatic Manual Inflatable PFD (Adults or Kids models available)
To some extent, most of us are guilty of compromising our safety when out on the water. We often take shortcuts regarding our safety by not wearing a life jacket, keeping expired flares, or not having the proper type of emergency device.
It's clear that many of us still need to be reminded of the importance of preparing for the worst while enjoying our time on the water, but it's equally clear that few boats are equipped with the proper safety equipment. We are reminded of this far too often in news reports about people drowning because they were not wearing a life jacket. Many of us think we are invulnerable to such an accident, but the truth is that anyone can drown. A life jacket may save you, your family, and your friends from drowning and the trauma and pain that comes with it.
Whether you're boating, canoeing or kayaking, wearing a life jacket is among the most critical things you can do to protect yourself on the water. However, not all life jackets are created equal as there are different types of life jackets designed for different activities, and each has its own set of pros and cons.
The Response Automatic Manual Inflatable PFD level 150 design allows for plenty of movement and is ideal for anglers, so rockhoppers should take note here. This PFD will not inhibit your movement as much as a bulky foam PFD, but it still gives you plenty of flotation. The Response Automatic Manual Inflatable PFD is among the most comfortable Automatic Inflatable PFDs for sale on the market, and it's also one of the lightest.
Don't be a statistic. Be safe on the water when boating or rock fishing, and invest in a quality PFD. The Response Automatic Manual Inflatable PFD could save your life.

Frequently asked questions
Some of the most frequently asked questions about the Response Automatic Manual Inflatable PFD include:
Q: What is the difference between an automatic and manual PFD?
A: The main difference between an automatic and manual PFD is that an automatic PFD will inflate automatically when it comes into contact with water. In contrast, a manual PFD requires the user to manually pull a cord to inflate the PFD. The Response Automatic Manual Inflatable PFD level 150 has a feature that allows the jacket to be either; converting the jacket to manual will come in handy when wearing the PFD in wet conditions.
Q: What are the benefits of an inflatable PFD?
A: Inflatable PFDs are much more comfortable to wear than traditional foam PFDs, as they are not bulky and restricting. Inflatable PFDs can also provide more flotation than foam PFDs, as they can be inflated to a much higher level to keep heads above water.
Q: How often do I need to replace my Response Automatic Manual Inflatable PFD?
A: The Response Automatic Manual Inflatable PFD has a self-service life of 5 years, meaning that it does not need to be replaced as often as some other inflatable PFDs. However, it is essential to regularly check the PFD for any damage or leaks and replace it if needed.
Q: What is the weight limit for the Response Automatic Manual Inflatable PFD?
A: The Response Automatic Manual Inflatable PFD Adult Size is suitable for anyone who weighs 40kg or over while the Kids Inflatable PFD is rated to children/youth who weigh between 22-40Kg.

Q: Is the Response Automatic Manual Inflatable PFD suitable for offshore?
A: Yes, the Response Automatic Manual Inflatable PFD is suitable for offshore and inshore use. With a rating of Level 150, it is among the best PFDs for offshore use.
Q: I'm a rockhopper. Would this PFD be suitable for me?
A: Yes, the Response Automatic Manual Inflatable PFD would be an ideal PFD for rockhoppers. The slimline design and lack of bulkiness allow plenty of movement, while the inflatable feature provides plenty of flotation. However, It is important to be aware that if you are knocked into the water by a freak wave and remain conscious, you might struggle to swim away from the ledge if the swell is constant and angry. Though, if common sense prevails, you will avoid fishing from the rocks when there is a high swell.
It is always a good idea to keep spare parts on hand. See our range of Response Inflatable PFD Servicing Parts for sale.
