I love this thing. I'm broad (6'2" - 280 lbs) and wanted something low. stays put, stays down yet feels very solid. Really like it with spray skirt on my sea kayak.
I'm a larger female and this vest fits true to the sizing guide. However, I am unhappy with the inability to adjust the shoulder straps. They ride up after a few hours of paddling and I constantly find myself tugging at my vest to keep them down and on (or near) my shoulders.
Fantastic PFD!!! I use it for whitewater kayaking and it performs beautifully! It doesn't ride up, it stays snug, but is still comfortable. I have done MANY full day trips and at the end of the day I still don't realize I'm wearing it! I have done a few class III swims in this, and I haven't been worried at all (well, as not-worried as one can be when swimming that is). Overall this is a great PFD, and I know that it will perform well for years to come!
This is a great life jacket! Pros: fits great, good storage, ride up is minimal. Cons: the sholder straps rub my kneck slightly, they have a slight migration after hours in a kayak, but nothing too uncomfortable. Great buy for the price!
