Most adults only need an extra seven to twelve pounds
of buoyancy to keep their heads above water.

Fat is not as dense as muscle and bone,
so people who are overweight can actually
be easier to float than someone who is
much smaller and leaner.
Heavy people do not need a higher buoyancy PFD
because of their weight.
