"Light, comfortable, easy on/off, way cooler than tradition PFDs"
Bought it for my teenage daughter to wear sailing with peers. She loves it and doesn't feel like a dork wearing a PFD while doing water sports! It's light, durable, easy on/off and really good looking (which is crucial).
"Performs as it should with a comfortable fit"
Purchased for river/ocean kayaking. Over all this is a premium PFD with a comfortable fit that gives your arms the ability to maneuver like some others do not. This would be an ideal vest for boaters, and cannoers. Kayakers may want to try a vest with a high back setup depending on your kayaks seat setup.
So much better than any other PFD I've owned. It fits perfect to my body, 6'3 athletic build. The straps are very comfortable, as well as the the rest of the vest. The zipper pocket is great too if you're planning to use it for kayaking so you don't have to worry about storing snacks in your tank space. I've had it for almost 6 months now and the only problem I've had is the bottom strap scratches you, but you can just slide it inside the bottom part. You have to repeat this somewhat but not enough to be annoying. All in all it's a great buy.
