Foam PFDs have been around longer than Angus, but not ones like these. New vests remain trim while being able to float you gear and all. In our 30-day test, commercial fishermen were pleasantly surprised by the comfort, not to mention the reliability and low cost. Foam’s inherent flotation also means less yearly maintenance than inflatable PFDs require. Pros preferred longer styles as they were less bulky and generally stayed out of the way during work.
