Review: I am a whitewater kayaker and ordered this tether for attaching to my Kokatat Rescue Vest (Life Jacket). The tether is of quality construction. The carabiner is large enough to attach to a grab handle on a boat or to clip around a paddle shaft (as I understand, some carabiners are not big enough to clip around a paddle shaft). A few things about ordering a tether. 1. Measure the distance from the back of your vest (as if you are sitting in the cockpit) to the back end of your boat. For whitewater boaters, the tether should be at least this long in the extended position. 2. The retracted distance should fit your life vest - measure from the center back of your vest around your body to the point of attachment. I recommend the retracted length of the tether to be about 1 to 2 inches less than the dimension measured. This will require the tether to be stretched slightly for attachment causing it to hug your body so it will not have the tendency to get caught on something should you go upside down or if swimming out of your boat. 3. Make sure you attach both ends of the tether to easy to operate quick releases. The video on the Austin Kayak is well worth watching. Austin Kayak did a great job including the informational video and Seal did a great job manufacturing the tether. My rescue vest came with quick releases for attaching both ends of the tether. For vests that do not have one, Seal should include an option to purchase one separately or include one with the sale of all tethers. I reduced the overall product rating from 5 to 4-1/2 stars for this reason only. All-in-all, I have no reservations about making this purchase. Happy boating, and may all your paddles be dry-haired adventures!
