A personal floatation device (PFD; also referred to as a life jacket, life preserver, life belt, Mae West, life vest, life saver, cork jacket, buoyancy aid or flotation suit) is a flotation device in the form of a vest or suite that is put on and helps to secure a user to prevent the wearer from drowning in a body of water. The device will keep the wearer afloat with his/her head and mouth above the surface – he/she does not have to swim or tread water in order to stay afloat and can even be unconscious. Unlike other flotation devices, a PFD is fastened to the user and does not need to be actively held onto; this prevents a wearer who is either in the water or sinking into the water from losing her grip on the flotation and in due course becoming drenched in the water leading to drowning. The buckling of the device also permits it to be comfortable when worn in the water and allows for wearer to swim or propel her/himself with all limbs. For all these reasons PFDs are the most common and widely used form of flotation device.
