Neoprene does not float you as high in the water. Also seems like the neoprene vests are made of darker colors. PFD's should be bright colored (yelllow or orange) and have reflective material, particualrly on the tops of the shoulders. If you notice manufactures who product professional vests for the coast guard, water rescue, etc. none are made of neoprene... why is this... because neoprene is not deemed as safe as the other materials. Seems water and jet skiers are not that concerned with their safety.

+Teo Jordan Hi Teo, Neoprene is a waterproof material. The nice thing about Neoprene life jackets is if you have a good fit, it will trap a thin layer of water between the jacket and your body keeping you warm out on the lake.
