Quality Life Jackets advocates the use of life jackets by all who participate in water sport activity. Can you imagine not wearing a parachute when you jump from a plane? No! You want to be safe! Male or female, we cannot fly like birds, and most of us cannot swim like fish! Wearing a Life Jacket or Life Vest is equivalent to wearing a parachute. If injured and in the water could you keep afloat? Could you keep someone else afloat? The answer is Yes! When life jackets are worn, lives are saved.

Ever taken a minute to think about the various types of water related accidents that people are involved in? Keeping some of these scenarios in mind will help you illustrate to friends and relatives why wearing a life jacket can save a life. Any of these scenarios could happen while enjoying time in a power boat, sail boat, jet ski, or paddle boat. Imagine a summer storms develops out of no where, or some crazy intoxicated folks come towards you and collide with your boat, any number of events can then occur. Your boat can capsize and you can get caught underneath. Your head can hit the side of the boat or a rock and now you are unconscious. You are swimming to land but land is far away and your clothes become water logged and very heavy. You are too tired to keep swimming. The motor is still running and you become unconscious from carbon monoxide fumes. Or maybe you are tossed into freezing water. We don't like to think about bad accidents, but they happen. Be prepared and prevent tragedy. Wear a Life Jacket.

Quality Life Jackets would like to introduce you to the many styles of life jackets available. Styles range from life belts, life vests, life jackets, to life coats. There are even life jackets designed to hold one in proper position for breathing if severely injured or unconscious. There are a variety of flotation devices available for children and even pets. Please choose a style of flotation device for you, your family members, and friends. Always have a couple extra on hand.

Quality Life Jackets believes that a day on the water in the sunshine and fresh air is a treat! Let’s all agree that wearing a life jacket is acceptable, is smart, and is a "cool" thing to do! Wear a Life Jacket, Save a Life!
