I'd like to hear suggestions for an affordable PFD for sit-in kayak fishing. I've read many reviews, but some complain about the lack of bouyancy. I'd appreciate any suggestions from those of you who have actually been in the water with theirs!

you want in any PFD are comfort and most important one that actually keeps your head up out of the water.That sounds obvious but many designs don't do that.They require you to maintain your position.That might be OK if your conscious and able to do so but if not you will drown.
I have this one...|

Where is the back flotation on the one you have now? Is it comfortable for a high-back kayak seat?

You absolutly must put on anthing you think you would like to buy.

Modern PFDs seem to bunch up the flotation to allow for freedom of movement. Many of the backs are bulky and not suitable for a high-backed seat. Look at lifejackets designed for kayaks.

spend the extra few bucks (this pfd still comes in under $100) and you won't be disappointed. Front folding zippered pockets (left and right) offer plenty of storage space.
