    Default Cabelas guide wear pfd

    Looking for inflatable life vest . Have seen several use these but see that they are not H.i.t . (not guaranteed not to open in a rain downpour ) Those having these ,have you had issues with rain causing them to inflate ?

    Have not fished in rain but mine did go off while in storage under front deck from moisture that eroded the salt tablet. But! At least I know it works! I believe you are supposed to change out the canister and the salt every two years or so and pressure check the vest by inflating the vest once a year. Never go without mine. No matter how good a swimmer you may be if you hit you head on the way out of the boat ya might not swim so good. Good luck....

    Nothing wrong with Cabellas..In rainy weather I wear a regular vest...I'm not sure it would work properly if worn under my rain suit..
