Many states (Minnesota included) do not require a water skiers or wakeboarders to have a Coast Guard Approved life vest on while waterskiing or wakeboarding. However, it these states, there needs to be one in the boat for that person. In these states Comp or Outlaw vests are can be used. Comp or Outlaw Vests are life jackets that provide some flotation and impact protection but do not pass the standards required of a Coast Guard Approved life vest. Comp or Outlaw vests tend to be much thinner, lighter, and have larger arm holes than Coast Guard Approved Life Jackets.
