ABSTRACT
The article offers a couple of tips for selecting life jackets to be used in exploring rivers in Alaska. Travelers need to wear life jacks at all times for safety. Some people who think they are safe as long as they have life jackets inside the boat are wrong. It is advisable to consider a life jacket both essential safety equipment and essential clothing that helps travelers stay warm while in the boat. A good life jacket should fit properly, comfortable, and specially designed for wearing while paddling. A good life jacket will not only keep one's head afloat if he capsizes but will also conserve body heat.
