Sooo....are barefoot suits legal without lift jackets? They don't have the USCG approved sticker on them but you can't really barefoot with a regular life jacket on.
My 8 y/o son has taken a liking to our barefoot suit. It has a ton of sewn/glued in flotation/padding and keeps him at least as well on top of the water as his regular life jacket. If it is rated to take falls at 40+ MPH I figure it should be OK at 18-20 wakeboarding/skating.
Anyways....any reason I should not let him just keep using the suit?
