Great Pfd for all around use.

Correct me if I am wrong, but altering it will void the pfd. I just have heard and read a lot (on here) about never doing any alterations on a pfd. Granted we are not on coast for most of us, but still applies IMHO.
Taken off the US. Coast Guard website: "1. Don't alter your PFD. If yours doesn't fit, get one that does. Play it safe. An altered PFD may not save your life."
"Don’t alter your life jacket. If yours doesn’t fit, get one that does.
An altered life jacket is no longer U.S. Coast Guard-approved
and may not save your life."
