  USA standards

I'm not convinced everything the USA government does
"actually" protects us all that well in the end run.
If something is good enough for 7 Billion other folks
--then maybe it's okay enough for those in the USA too.

International Organization for Standardization aka ISO

International Maritime Organization aka IMO

The USA Coast Guard uses the IMO requirements
for acceptance of buoyancy material for
SOLAS lifeboats and rescue boats.
These same materials may be used in some ring buoys,
life floats, buoyant apparatus, and the like.

I wouldn't hesitate to wear this from a foreign country
