According to the USCG, 80% of all canoe and 46% of all kayak fatalities are due to not wearing a life jacket. Weather, water temperatures, watercraft traffic, and your preparedness all contribute to the outcome of your safety even during low-intensity water activities. All of these factors can lead to your canoe or kayak capsizing.
The USCG provides a plethora of reasons you should always wear a life jacket, but one thing to always keep in mind is that accidents can happen anywhere at any time. You can control the actions that keep you safe, but you cannot control external factors. Wearing a life jacket drastically increases your chances of coming home safely.
