Video Transcript

This is the Gill Front Zip Child and Youth US Coast Guard Approved PFD. It's a Type II, so it is very much like it's adult version, just scaled down in size. We've got adjustable shoulder straps up here with neoprene padding underneath. And I've got front entry zipper here. I've got a waist belt that runs all the way around. So I've got a buckle here, with no adjustment. The adjustments are actually here and here, so I just reach back and pull them as needed. In the child size, you do have a crotch strap here, which keeps the vest down in the water, and keeps you floating higher. And the youth does not include the crotch strap. On the sides, in addition to the adjustment down here, I've got a side adjustment on either side, and I've got zipper storage pockets and in this one, I have an attachment point for a lanyard. And access to the inside, I need to actually open this Velcro, which keeps the zipper up and closed, open this up, and easy access.

This is the Gill Front Zip PFD.
