    Experience true comfort, maneuverability, and safety on the water with men's, women's, and kids' life jackets from O'Brien. Since 1964, O'Brien has and will always focus on creating the best products for water sports. Our passion for water skiing, wakeboarding, wakesurfing, kneeboarding, tubing, etc. never ceases. As these categories evolve, products like life vests must change as well. However, the one thing that doesn't change is our commitment to safety. Currently, every product in this line has undergone testing with the United States Coast Guard. They have all received their stamp of approval as a floatation device. You can rest easy knowing that when sized and worn properly, O'Brien life jackets will help keep you safe on the water.

    Comfort is also a major priority when it comes to life jackets. Let's break this down into a couple of different areas. One of the most important factors involves materials. For premium comfort, BioLite or Neoprene life jackets are the way to go. They feel soft and smooth on your skin and have a more customized fit. This is ideal for water sports like wakeboarding, wakesurfing, waterskiing, and kneeboarding, where you need the life vest to flex and move with you. Nylon is the other classic material used in floatation devices. These are great for activities like tubing and general boating. Nylon vests are also more affordable than Neoprene, and some of them can accommodate broader size ranges for easier sharing.

    The other key factor for comfort involves the cut and specific features on the life jacket. For example, split foam panels on PFDs create hinge points to improve mobility. Additionally, features like stretch panels allow the life jacket to wrap perfectly around your body for a more customized fit. You can find these features and more throughout the O'Brien line.

    Some brands choose to sacrifice safety for comfort. With O'Brien there are no sacrifices. Quality, comfort, and safety are built into every life jacket.
