This is my second Stohlquist Decent Rescue jacket. I have been very happy with it. Buoyancy is good for my 200 pounds. Tether works well.

Love the jacket! Very comfortable, very adjustable. We appreciated the additional instructions on the rescue belt too. This is easily the best life jacket that we've ever bought. We'll be using it for rafting & kayaking & wanted a comfortable hi float jacket for high water MFS & Grand Canyon trips. AKC did a nice job of getting it to us on time, as advertised too.
