  • Features: The main aim of a buoyancy aid will always be to float you, but beyond this, it’s worth considering what features you’re going to want from your buoyancy aid; pockets, a rescue belt, hydration systems, etc.
  • Fit: If you’re wearing it every time you’re out on the water, you don’t want to have to constantly readjust straps or have to pull it back down after it rides up. A great indicator for if something fits well is comfort – a bonus to getting a well fitting buoyancy aid!
  • Entry style: Whether it’s a central zip, over the head, or side entry buckles, there’s plenty of options to pick from, and most people tend to have a preference.
