Life Jackets

Post by Wetshiny » May 17th, 2018, 8:11 am

In addition to rain gear, I love to wear my vintage orange coloured Otter inflatable rubber coated life jacket.
Oiled up inside the inner layer of PVC next to my skin, followed by an outer layer of yellow Grundens oilskin bibs pulled over the matching jacket & black rubber boots or thigh waders and of course the obligatory souwester. Tying the waist strap around my stomach then the crotch straps tight between my legs provides for the most gorgeous feeling walking along or sitting down feeling the inner oiled up layer pulling tight between my thighs.
Combined with the contrast of colours and the pungent rubbery smell from the inflated jacket the whole experience is just wonderful, particularly so when seen by others when i'm in my small boat.

This is also something I relate to so well. I also absolutely adore wearing a tightly secured lifejacket over my plastic rainwear.

Of course I always pull the crotchstrap nice and tight too!
