33. It would slow your fall through the air, but hurt more hitting the water.
Without a lot of extra material on your person, a body can slip into the water without decelerating to dramatically.

Having on a bulky life jacket would, I think, make entry more painful.

But you gotta have a life vest.

Ouch.
