Description / Abstract:

These requirements cover adult recreational wearable devices having at least one buoyancy compartment that relies upon inflation by gas or other medium to provide flotation to the wearer, for use by individuals at least 16 years of age and weighing 80 pounds (36.3 kg) or more.

These requirements cover devices intended for general boating activities where impacts with the water or other objects (i.e. those which occur during water skiing, white water paddling, personal watercraft use, and parasailing) are not likely.

These requirements cover rearming kits for the devices covered by this Standard.

Several levels of performance are set out by this standard to meet the needs of various boating activities, locations, and water conditions. The performance levels are designated by performance type.
