Good quality and decent features for the price. It is hot; should have a buckle at the top of the chest so you could open the zipper for ventilation. I am 6'1" and 200 pounds and the LG/XL is big on me.

PFD came with package deal. Good jacket just should not be sold with a kayak. Full back literally is a pain. Would be fantastic for a canoe. ACK should have thought of this before selling it with a kayak. Quality gear though.

The PFD's that come as part of the Malibu 2XL kayak package are extremely comfortable, easy to take on and off, and really perfect for my wife and me. Should last a very long time.

Top Question & Answer
Q: I'm chest size 44" & 6' tall. What would be best Vista PFD size - L/XXL or XXL? Thanks
A: Thanks for your Question! With a 44" chest you would be in the XXL category, which ranges from 42"-50" for the XXL. The main difference is the length of the straps!
