I have narrowed my inflatable pfd search down to two. Both are auto/manual (each can be converted to be automatic/manual or manual only inflation). Has anyone had any experience with either of these two?
- Onyx 24 A/M Deluxe
- Stearns A/M Model 2000004046
Thanks,
billgill

I have an older model Stearns which I just love. No matter which brand or model you choose the inflatable PFD's are cooler to use in the warm months, don't get in the way and are ready to go when you need them for their purpose. There are many models and prices to pick from so I think it is more a matter of your personal preference over anything else. As far as I'm concerned I don't think I'll ever go back to the encased foam PFD's. :D

Your Hobie dealer sells one that works awesome - part # S6779RG $123.99 Also Available in tan/grey as well (they are manual-inflate, not automatic, which aren't suitable for a kayak)
