The float member is made of a floatable material, having a head hole in an intermediate lateral portion, a front float portion, a rear float portion, and a shoulder portion between the front and the rear float portion. The cloth layer is adhered or fused on the front surface and/or the rear surface of the float member to increase the structural strength of the life jacket. The front and the rear float portion have a plurality of band holes for a strap band to pass through to bind them on the body of a user. The rear float portion has plural holes spaced apart to reduce its boyancy. The float member with the head hole, the shoulder portion, the band holes and the holes in the rear float portion are formed by a molding pressing process to reduce the cost of the life jacket.
