Servicing & Self Inspection
As with all inflatable Life Jackets, it's a legal requirement to service them annually as per the manufactures instructions.
These Inflatable Jackets can be self serviced for the first two years, but it is highly recommended to have them professionally serviced by an authorised service agent on the 3rd year.
Here is a copy of the service manual & self inspection checklist.
PROOF OF PURCHASE
To ready yourself for when fishing authorities check your safety equipment, it is important you have your proof of purchase with you when out boating. The best way to do this is to put a copy of your PFD receipt/invoice inside a sealable bag like a Glad ziplock bag, and then put this in your pfd pocket.
Why do I need to do this? Your legal servicing requirements start from the date of purchase not the manufacturer date.
UNDERSTANDING PFD STANDARDS
The New Australian Standard is AS4758 (as of July 2010)
The change that will be most noticeable is a new way of identifying PFDs for different uses.
The new standard introduces the identification of PFDs by 'levels'.
- Level 150 - similar to inflatable PFD Type 1 and suitable for offshore use
- Level 100 - similar to PFD Type 1 and the minimum requirement for offshore use
- Level 50 - similar to PFD Type 2
- Level 50 Special Purpose (50S) - to replace PFD Type 3

Although the Safety Standards for life jackets apply national wide, the situations in which they must be worn may vary in each state.
Make sure you check the regulations in your local area before hitting the water.

Automatic inflatable life jacketBy: Gay-Maree Eaton (verified purchase)This is my first life jacket and opted for an inflatable one as I need to protect my ears if I were to get submerged by water. There was a law passed in 2010 that even a kayak or canoe rider can be fined without a jacket. It is made to Australuan standards and need to have proof of purchase on self if pulled up by the Water ways inspectors.

Highly impressedBy: Slade (verified purchase)This PDF is unbeatable for value & quality, I also own a couple of Stormy PDf's at 4x the cost and this PDF is more comfy, almost on par with quality and construction. I'll be upgrading the rest of our PDF's to this.

Great all rounderBy: Adrian Brown (verified purchase)The PFD is a solid all rounder that I have used in my business for 2.5 years, my teams wear these at all times whilst on our vessels (70 in use). It is professionally constructed and quality parts are used in its construction and having the option for two colours is easy for identification between the auto(red) and manual(blue) jackets. Spare parts are readily available. The only short fall with the jackets is the bladder can come out, due to nothing stopping it coming out, a small piece of velcro will do the job . Discussions with the supplier has ensured that this small fix will be in place prior to my next order. 4.5 star rating, 5 when the velcro fix is applied.

Auto inflate Life JacketBy: Graeme Jackson (verified purchase)Items certainly look as good as expected. Naturally they have not yet been tested and I have no intention to deliberately do so. I have adjusted the straps to suit my body and find the outfit very comfortable. Hope they NEVER have to inflate.
