I own a NRS Chinook life vest which is a very good kayak fishing vest with lots of storage pockets. The Hobie inflatable life vest is a lot less bulky and very comfortable to wear. I spend about 5-6 hours on the water when I go out. The weather is usually in the 90's so the Hobie inflatable helps me stay cooler and gives me more freedom of movement. It does have a zipper pocket on it that you can use for small items. I prefer this vest due to comfort and freedom of movement. Excellent quality and fit, I am a big man at 5'11" 245 lbs. and has more adjustment for bigger people.
