  • What an upgrade!

    February 06, 2017

    For those of you looking for an upgrade from the Sea Wolf, search no more. The Sea Wolf was already a really good PFD with tons of features and packed with safety and rescue in mind. The Blue Jacket is simply a revised version that replaces the Sea Wolf. All the things you loved about the Sea Wolf with some really great upgrades. The clam shell pocket is similar to that of the Green jacket. Its very versatile. The pocket has two top opening by the shoulder straps allowing for a VHF antenna to stick out while the radio is well protected inside the clam shell. Two additional zipper pockets inside the clam shell allow for small notebooks and repair tape. I also keep a vinyl emergency hatch cover in there. In short, the clam shell area is a total upgrade to what was a great design to begin with! The water bladder hooks on the back of the jacket are more robust and easier to reach. I am not a fan of the lose straps once you adjusted the vest. Now the straps have velcro which keeps them out of the way at all times. The shoulder straps have a really robust slash tabs along with elastic straps giving you even more options to attach your favorite accessories like knife, flash light, carbines or whistles to name a few. When I was done accessorizing the jacket and headed to the water, the jacket did feel just as comfortable as the old Sea Wolf but I had all the items I needed more easily available. Including my old web tow with belt from my old jacket which is fully compatible with this new upgraded design. The two additional side pockets are still one of my favorite features. Not only great to keep the short web two out of the way, it still fits a small first aid, snack and for some of us, spare contact lenses! This jacket allows you to bring everything you want and need without compromising comfort.
    You will notice I use the work UPGRADE often in my review. Thats because I dont have enough words to properly describe how great is the Blue Jacket. If you loved the Sea Wolf, there is no reason you will love the Blue Jacket much, MUCH more. I used to be excited about the boats I paddled, but now I have to share that excitement with the life vest I use.
