First impression was of well constructed and ease of adjustment. Straps hold down PFD easily and is very comfortable. Well worth the dollars and sold by a very Service Oriented merchant. Would and have recommended to boating buddies

Handy pockets, safe PDF. However, it seems most PDFs must be designed by men who are, of course, flat-chested (smile). How about designing a PDF for women with hollows for busts and flotation below bust line & around. Can't see why it wouldn't work.

I received this as part of a package. fits well, comfortable, hardly feel that I'm wearing it when I'm out of the water.
