    Beauty of a PFD

    Love my PFD. I will say, it's extremely buoyant and I may have been better off with a middle of the line buoyancy, but I'm sure I'll be glad if I ever need it.

    Great fit

    Got this for my husband who is a 1st time boater. It fits him great and doesn't limit his mobility. He's a surfer and not used to wearing a pfd. Even he loves it.

    A Superb Life Jacket!

    This PFD is the best I have ever owned. It is very well designed, very well made, and super-comfortable. What I love about it is the fact that it does not impede my paddling strokes whatsoever, as it allows my arms the freedom of movement that my old jacket didn't. The flotation is placed low so as to keep the upper body high in the water, and the straps are perfectly positioned to keep the jacket close to the torso without riding-up. The fact that it is so comfortable makes it more likely that I will actually wear it, even on easy flat-water paddles, rather than just throw it in the bottom of my canoe (like I often did with my old PFD.) It has lots of flotation that is well-placed, yet it is not bulky at all. ...Very well designed, and high-quality construction. I love the small zip-pocket for holding car keys, etc. I purchased one for my wife's birthday as well, and she loves hers as much as I do. You won't be disappointed!

    Great PFD but a bit tall

    Very comfortable and easy to fit, but stands a bit tall when using in a kayak. I generally need to keep it very loose so my chin dosent get hit by it every paddle.

    Built for Speed

    Set it and forget it. This PFD is comfortable first and foremost, but most importantly for me, it stays in place. I actually bought this for sailing on the Chesapeake Bay. I'm scrambling all over the boat, and the last thing I want is to have to keep readjusting my life jacket. This thing snugs down, is incredibly comfortable, gives me full range of motion in any direction, and it stays put. The icing on the cake is the stowable strap ends. Not having those things flapping about in my face is awesome.
