Has not saved my life yet, but comfortable and well made. Worth $$$
Good fit and comfortable to wear while paddling. Im 6 ft 185 lbs and purchased the L/XL. Bought this for kayak touring and not for fishing though I may use it for both. The material used to make the jacket however is on the thin side and I dont think its going to wear well. Im comparing it to the MS Fit by Kokatat my wifes which although a more expensive jacket appears will outlast this one. That said its still the nicest fishing vest Ive seen.
Looked around at various Fishing PFDs and decided on the NRS Chinook. The high back is comfortable for the sit-on-top kayak. There are plenty of pockets to hold tools and a small box for lures. One little feature that is nice is the buckle below the zipper, once buckled it is a bit easier to zip it up. I've used it for about a month and have been please with it.
Bought this on the recomendations from almost every review I've read plus every kayak forum online. They weren't wrong! There may be other worthy PFD's out there but for the price, comfort and fit you can't beat the NRS Chinook. ACK is great as usual with fast service and free shipping.
