A guy just died on the Dearborn river in MT. He didn't have his PFD on because "it restricted his rowing". GET ONE THAT FITS AND IS COMFORTABLE. I think that is a cop out, just say you don't like wearing it all the time, which is totally understandable in some cases (flatwater, not the dearborn at 6K+). If PFD's can be worn for 3+ weeks on the GC, it seems there must be some that are comfortable and won't overheat.
