Life vest fits well and is extremely comfortable. Does not ride up and
the high back is perfect for my sit on kayak.
Bought this as a gift for a friend. Looked like a really nice quality vest
when I received it. I think she is really going to like it. Sorry I can't
review the functionality.

I'm average size 5'-5" and

very comfortable the first time
I put it on. Not bulky does not
interfere with paddling. Love
the half back. With the
discounts offered by ACK this
was a very good buy.
I tried this on at a local retailer
and liked the fit however, I did
NOT like the cost. I found this
much cheaper on ACK and
received it quickly. The PFD is
well made with zippers placed
in good locations for easy
It was comfortable on my 3-
hour kayak paddle. Although it
is a little bulky in front, it did
not hinder my paddling and
this is the most comfortable
PDF I have ever worn.
Service was swift and I'd buy
from ACK again.
Byron and Kerry
[Australia]. I purchased this
for my wife after speaking with
the Stohlquist staff about her
intentions for the product and
her measurements. My wife is
absolutely delighted with the
service and the product; form
and function is perfect. We
check a lot of local stock
before deciding to import -
absolutely no regrets - highly
recommended. The only
hassle and it was hardly worth
mentioning is that the courier
wasn't willing to leave the
parcel at the door - so we
ended up picking it up from the
Fits my curvy shape and I dont
even know its on. Love it.
This PFD is definitely worth the
price, slightly above some of
the others, but it looks nice,
and has lots of pockets and
mesh. The fit is small, so size
large and above (I wear size
14 in women's clothes) need to
go with the Plus size, and even
then I had to let out all the
tighteners. ACK was great to
work with when I had to
exchange sizes, and each time
shipping was fast!
Just great. Good price, quick
service. Will certainly buy from
Stohlquist PFD -
Best PFD I ever had; have
been using it most of the
summer, most recently 2 days
ago. Comfort and fit are
excellent. I would give it a 5.
I like the way the vest hugs
my body and does not rub on
my arms. The multiple
adjustments are the key to the
Thank you ACK one week and
it was here.
I've had a Stohlquist BetSea for a couple of years
and love it. I added the Cruiser since it has a
mesh back that works better with my new
kayak's back band. The key reason for my 5-
star rating is that, like the BetSea, the Cruiser is
totally adjustable to fit almost any figure.
I purchased the M/L based on the
measurements given on this site. I
thought the vest was horrible. Then I
went to a local store, where someone
knowledgable fitted me, and I ended up
with this same vest in the XS/S. Now
that I have the correct size, I love this
product. It does not ride up when I am
sitting, and there is no rubbing under
the arms. So in my case anyway, with
a 35 chest, I needed to go down a size.
Also, the blue is very pretty.
