I searched for weeks trying to find the perfect PFD that is not restricted in the arms for kayaking, lightweight and has thin foam so fishing and general movements are free. This vest is far superior to anything else I found and the largest size is more than big enough for my 350lb buddy to wear without sliding up. I would highly recommend this to my friends
I bought this product because it had great reviews. My experience, however, was no so great. Since I live in Florida we always go out without a shirt because it is very hot. While wearing the pfd for my normal 3 hr paddle, the harness belts wore on my sides and actually caused bleeding. This happens no matter how I adjust the pfd. This may happen with all pfds and not necessarily just this one. Anyway I would rather take the risk of drowning than suffer the pain of wearing this pfd.. Mine sits happily in the garage at all times.
This is a excellent PFD. I especially like the high back feature. Fit is outstanding and easy to adjust once you figure it out as there aren't any directions to speak of. The only downside is this vest doesn't really vent well in the front so it can get a little toasty on longer paddles.
Good quality. High back and arm room for movement are excellent. S/M fits more like an S, but plenty of adjustment available.
