Do any of you big guys wear one of those inflatable life jackets?

I'm looking for one that'll fit someone that typically wears 4X. Wanted to see if someone could point me in the right direction.

TIA!

just be sure the one you get has 35# of flotation, the ones that cost less normally have 24# of flotation.

guys look into the new law about inflatable , it states that if you wear an inflatable you must wear it all the time while you are in the boat if not you must have a regular wearable life jacket, this means while we used to when you get to your spot to fish you take off inflatable , you can't do that now if game warden sees you without a regular life jacket it is a $100.00 ticket

Those that are on sale look at the close some are wet activated and some are pressure activated. They were all on the same shelf in Waco. I had to take them out of the pkg and check to find a pressure activated

if you have traditional lifejackets within reach you're good.
OP, you might look at the offshore autoinflatable lifejackets. These are good for men with chest size up to 52"
