I am ignorant on PFD's so I apologize in advance.

I am wanting a PFD that I will wear while fishing out of my bass boat so comfort level is obviously important. However, I also want the same PFD to wear while in my kayak on the river so that probably makes the automatic ones a little problematic due to moisture? Additionally, I am VERY large so the options are limited. Chest size is 56-58 depending on the time of year! LOL Any advice? Do I need two different PFD's for both options? Thanks in advance.

Maybe a Hydro-static inflatable. The only problem I could for see is when you get dumped in the Yak. You would need to keep extra cylinders handy.

That's what I am afraid of. If it was just for the lake that is what I would go with. Might not be one single PFD to fit both applications?
