No Life Jacket? – Improvise with pants.

No Life Jacket Required

Who needs a life jacket when you've got a good set of pants on? My good friend, Michael Carr, demonstrates the lost art of turning clothing into survival gear (in under a minute). (Note: of course, I am not advocating for not using a life jacket while boating. Life jackets always work better than pants.)
