Life vest - expected service life?

Just wondering how long typical life vests will last before flotation/safety is comprised?

5 years or 300 uses is my standard. I had Astral re-stuff a PFD this year and got an extra season out of it and will now consider it my spare.

As with any equipment you want to clean it and inspect it regularly - which includes getting in the water and floating in it.

If you cease to believe in it, you should destroy it, not sell it to someone else.
