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.
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!
I always wear a pfd when on the water while sailing or kayaking. I bought the Rocker to replace my light weight foam rib pfd because I could not duplicate my worn out pfd. I had to adjust to heavy shoulder straps and more bulk. Pro features: does not ride up when in water. A wonderful water bottle holder that reduces the time needed to grab a drink in sailboat races.
