This life jacket is the NRS Otto Matik Inflatable PFD (Personal Flotation Device) and automatically inflates upon contact with water delivering on-demand flotation for flatwater and near-shore paddling and fishing. When deflated, the vest secures with a waist buckle and offers one adjustment point for a snug fit. In the event of a swim, the integrated bladder instantly inflates with CO2 gas pressure when immersed in water. This Otto Matik folds compactly into a low-profile horse-collar style jacket to give you on-demand flotation that doesn't get in your way stand-up paddling, fishing or wading. Features a zippered pocket with internal tether for keys or a whistle plus a manual backup cord, mouth inflation valve, reflective accents and two attachment points. Also includes one 24 gram CO2 cartridge and one replacement CO2 Re-Arming Kit. CO2 cartridges are one-time-use only. It's good practice to keep an extra CO2 cartridge on hand to re-arm the PFD after each inflation. An inflatable PFD is certified by the US Coast Guard as a Type V PFD. However, it meets Coast Guard requirements for Type III PFDs when it is worn. In other words, you must be wearing the deflated collar for it to qualify as a required flotation device.
