Lifejackets and buoyancy aids The water can be extremely unpredictable. It is vital to wear a lifejacket or buoyancy aid. The RNLI believes that lifejackets save lives and are useless unless worn. If you find yourself in the water, a lifejacket or buoyancy aid could save your life but only if you ensure that it is the correct size and type for you, properly fastened, maintained, and that you understand how to operate it.
