Hi, I'm Jocelyn from AQ Outdoors! This post and video below shows you how to properly fit a PFD.


How to Properly Fit a PFD

1. Put on your PFD, making sure the straps are all the way loose.

2. Do up the buckle and the zipper, then begin by tightening the bottom strap.

3. Do the next strap and then adjust from the top.

4. Your PFD should be sitting just above your belly button.

5. Now snug everything down so that when you pull on the strap, it doesn't go above your ears.
