Need advice on PFD's

I'm new to whitewater rafting (with oars). I've been looking at PFD's and am confused with all the choices. I'll be fishing out of the raft as well as just using it to cruise down the river. Anyone have any specific recommendations on the PFD's I should buy? A previous poster said he bought MTI Big Buoy Whitewater and really liked them. Thanks for your advice.

There are a bunch of post on this topic-but the bottom line is go with what is comfortable for your body. The more comfortable it is- the more you will wear it all the time when near the water. Check fit and arm movement. There is no one perfect PFD for everyone.

Good luck!
