How to fit your PFD properly:
Line + Cleat recommends using a US Coast Guard approved PFD for all of your activities on or around the water.
US Coast Guard approved PFDs have government standards that are set and monitored by a company called UL.  UL’s mission is to help deliver safety, quality, security, sustainability, and confidence.  For more information on UL see

A few key features to consider when buying and fitting a US Coast Guard approved life jacket for your child are materials, closure, and weight requirements:
Evoprene life jackets are softer and more comfortable and tend to stretch slightly when wet. They come with both a front zipper and 2 front buckles.  When the life jacket is zipped up it should feel snug on your body.  The buckles can also be used to make the vest more snug.  Make sure the jacket is a tight and snug fit prior to getting wet.
Child PFDs are sized based on weight. Line + Cleat currently offers a 0-30lb and a 30-50lb option. Line + Cleat will be expanding on more size options as we grow.
Non coast guard approved vests or swim trainers are not standardized and will have different fits form US Coast Guard Approved and between different brands.  We recommend you follow the Think Smart guide closely to find the optimal fit for you. You can also consult the US Coast Guard website for additional information on proper fit and use of your PFD.
