Like most guys with a man-card, I rarely read the owner's manual (for anything).

Inflatable PFD's are one of the RARE exceptions where I actually do.

Read it closely, because it probably recommends re-arming every year or every other year (even if it looks perfectly fine).

Mine is a different brand (SOSpenders), but I think they are all pretty similar in design. My particular vest can be set to either automatic or manual. I had it on automatic and it went off by itself while in my boat compartment from the humidity - there went about $25 down the drain. Anyway, I couldn't figure out how to fold it back up and rearm it so I hung it in my basement for about 2 years. I finally broke down and read the instructions, switched it to manual so it wouldn't go off accidentally again, and I'm finally back in action. Now I just have to get used to wearing the darn thing.

My favourite thing about the Guidewear inflatables is I barely know they are one.

We put ours on when we get in the boat, twice last summer I started walking down the dock to the car with the vest still on.

I do that all the time, don't notice I have it on until I get in the truck and usually notice the buckle pressing into my back.

Mine are the Guidewear as well, great jackets especially if you get them on sale.
