Float Coats Tested
Picking a floating foulie comes down to needs, features, and price.
Cool weather sailors looking for something that keeps them warm as well as keeps them afloat if they fall overboard may want to consider a float coat. We look at six coats that cover the range of options available waist-length coats, mid-length coats, inflatable jackets, and foam-filled jackets. For the budget-minded sailor, the Stearns Powerboat Jacket offers good value, while the Mustang Integrity rated as our Best Choice. Two other jackets, the auto-inflating Float Tech jacket and the Stearns Windward Jacket earn our recommendation.
