Great fit and love the airflow/cooling design - allows me to cool off during strenuous paddling periods.
a good idea- poor execution, overly bulky and uncomfortable vest- harp stitching-rubs arms raw with little movement
Love this life vest. My old vest hit the back of my seat oddly and I could never get comfortable. It is also much lighter with lots of ventilation for warm days.
Excellent product. Fits well and is very comfortable.
