Rated 2 out of 5áby glad2bkayaking No confidence in this one.
On a positive note, it looks nice.
Downside for me; two things:
1) Didn't like not having anything supportive in back (the entire top & shoulders area is mesh). Thought I would like the mesh, but it seemed more like wearing a belt than a vest.
2) Purchased this in XL and it was too large - couldn't tighten it down to fit snug enough at all. For reference; I wear a size 48 jacket.
Ended up buying the MTI Solaris Fishing Life Vest (here at Dick's), in the L/XL size and it fits better and has a solid back but still enough freedom in the arm area for paddling a kayak.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Yakker Great PFD
Comfort! Confidence! Appearance! An excellent PFD for my use in recreational and fishing yakking in the mangroves along the Intracoastal Waterway on Florida's east coast.

Loved that this pfd was mesh thought it would be cooler. Not cool in bigger heat like over 80 but still all good.

Rated 5 out of 5áby PDXcanoewoman great vest
We just bought a canoe and needed life jackets. My husband and I both wanted this vest because of all the pockets and the short waist...great for paddling. However, the store only had it in my size and it was the last one. He was very disappointed, but I was very happy. When we got out on the water I was delighted with the vest...just what I needed. Not bulky, not hot (because of the netting on the upper section)...just perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5áby johns46 The freedom to move freely while wearing it is really true I really like it!
When I put it on I knew the life jacket would work me because of all the freedom I had around the arms, I was very happy with it!

This is a very comfortable kayak vest. Large arm openings prevent chafing.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Harddriver Great PFD
I bought this last week and have used it several time now. The fit is perfect, good ventilation, self draining zippered pockets and great arm movement. I use this while fishing from my kayak for several hours at a time and to be honest I forget its on. The price at Dicks was great on top of it all.

I am a big guy and live in South Georgia and this vest is comfortable and not too hot when kayaking and fishing.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Bridge Vest
The catch is that I have nothing to compare it to.
It floats and it seems to dry quickly.
The quality and comfort are good.
