RE:Personal Flotation Devices for Wading

Juro,
I've got one of the Cabela's suspenders-type CO2 PFDs, and while it's gotten wet, the activating mechanism doesn't seem to have gotten corroded. I'll admit that it's probably much drier than the belt styles, as it's at around mid-chest level. On mine, it's just a pivot with a pin that punctures the end of the cartridge- I'd think that covering it with a water-repellant lube (similar to what I use on bicycle hub bearings) ought to keep it working reliably.
