About Us

Thanks for visiting LifeJacketAdvisor.com. My name is Alex and my wife and I created LJA to help other water lovers find the perfect life jacket for their themselves, their families, and even their dogs. We believe life jackets and vests get a bad rap for being bulky, uncomfortable, expensive, and even goofy looking. That may have been the case 20 years ago but research and technology have made them safer, sleeker, comfortable, affordable, and much more stylish. With so many options available, it’s also a lot tougher to find the right one.

That’s exactly why we made this site. We hope to not only educate you on what to look for when buying a life jacket, but we recommend the best life jacket for specific activities, ages, and applications. We’re not afraid to recommend a $20 life vest over an $80 one if we feel it’s the better product or value. If you have any questions or feel a certain model is better than our picks, please use our Contact page to let us know. We’d love to hear from you!

Remember…

Drivers wear their seat belts.
Football players wear their helmets.
Skydivers wear their parachutes.
Everyone out on the water should wear their life jackets!
