Very comfortable and does not
get in the way of paddling my
kayak. Got this to use to fish
off of my kayak and it was well
worth the little bit of money it
costs. Does not bother me
with my high back kayak seat
and like most said you hardly
remember you have it on. I
would definitely buy it again.
I finally got to use this vest
today. Very comfortable with
the back floatations above my
Native first class seat back. My
back now rest against the
entire seat for less fatigue in
the lower back. Plenty of
storage for all my gear, hooks,
lures, pliers, hemostats etc. I
really love this vest! It's very
well made. Very handsome
and durable. I would
recommend this vest.
Great fit. Shipped fast too.
Bought this for cold weather
Kayak fishing. Got it in size
LG/XLG. to accomadate a
range of layered clothing. I like
the range of adjustment. Got a
chance to use it late November
fishing. The zippered chest
pockets are semi rigid, formed
and a little bulky, but open
down as a small compartment
or tray, with sewn loops inside,
a nice feature for quick access
to hook pliers, etc. Would
Fits great and feels great. Slightly
bulky but does the job well. Would
definitely recommend it to other
users. The only reason for the 4
stars would be the bulk.
Gulf Coast Kayaker
I wear this PFD fishing several times a week in my
kayak. Its a little bulky but comfortable. I haven't
really found a need to fold down the front pouches for
work space and they seem to be a waste and extra
bulk if you ample space on your kayak to store the
small odds and end items.
At first I thought it was a little bulky but with
all the infinite adjustments and the front
storage pockets it fit me perfectly, Very easy
to paddle with. Very happy with it, No
problem getting it on or off.
Stohlquist Fishing vest:
Well made but bulky, hot after a couple
hours, doesn't interfere with paddling but
would be an aggravation on a long day trip.
Very comfortable vest for kayaking.
Pockets and mount points are very
handing for all sorts of tools, tackle
and the like. I'm 5'10" and 175, and
the large size fits me perfectly.
Well made, fully adjustable,
Very good quality jacket. I like
the pockets for fishing tackle and
Very comfortable PFD even when
paddling on long trips.
