Review: The life jacket is light, comfortable and unobtrusive. Will try it in some warm weather as soon as summer is here. AKC service was exceptional and they matched REI's discount price.

Review: This is a very comfortable and adjustable PFD, haven't had to test it yet, but we are very happy with the fit and quality. ACK has very fast shipping, an awesome selection and great prices. We will shop here first for our kayak gear!

Review: I bought this after reading many reviews on the comfort of this pfd, and how well it worked for a high-back kayak seat. I have a 140 Tsunami and after wearing this for 3 hours, I couldn't wait to take it off. It's moderately comfortable, but doesn't work with my high-backed seat at all. I couldn't get comfortable and kept trying to shift it up/down, so I am on the search for a truly high-back seat compatible pfd.

Review: Really pleased with the fit of this pfd. They actually use med/lg instead of lg/xl which makes a huge difference in my body size. This fits perfectly when most won't.
