Looking to upgrade my PFDs. I have several older Sterns life vests in my boat.  They are getting a little raggedy. My boat is pretty space challenged. Was thinking of getting several inflatable vests. Not looking to break the bank but looking for small, DEPENDABLE but affordable (not that I am putting a price tag on safety). If I go with inflatable do the cartridges have a shelf life and need to be replaced regularly ?

The inflatables I’ve had came with expiration codes on the cartridges.  IMO there are advantages to the inflatables, but from strictly a dollars and cents view a regular pfd is less money.  There are some pfd’s that are pretty comfortable (and warm in cold weather).  In the end matter of personal preference.

Inflatables only count if worn not stored and yes there is an expiration on cartridges
