Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product I am glad I purchased this at Dick's in store as opposed to an on-line purchase. I was able to try on various sizes. I am glad I did. Much to my surprise I took a L/XXL and am 5'7", so buyer beware, the sizing runs small. Check out the other reviews and you will see similar comments about sizing. Aside from that, its a good fitting, comfortable, and stylish PFD. Even though it was a little more expensive, you get what you pay for. I will pay more for a quality product and put this side by side the other PFD's on the display, no comparison to the less expensive brands. I won't risk my life on a cheaper product, this vest is a good value!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable This vest is very comfortable to wear all day out on the water. It has a nice snug fit without being constricting. Looks good. Has great bouyancy without feeling bulky. Large arms holes make it easy to row while wearing. Breathes well so we don't get too hot wearing it. Only complaint is that it rides up a bit when you sit, but does have nice large v-neck, so it doesn't choke you when it rides up. Easy care - sprayed it down with shower hose, hung on hanger, ready for next time out. We tried on quite a few and this was the most comfortable. Bought one for each member of the family. I would highly recommend this life vest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job - comfortably I bought this product to use in our Kayak on the lake. It fit comfortably with no restricted range of motion. The zipper and dual buckles add a sense of security and safety. My only comment is that the sizing appears a bit small, so I am glad I tried on a larger size. Best is the 2 for 1 deal. I did try on other less expensive Personal Floatation Devices (PFD) and opted for the extra expense due to the better fit and added comfort. I also chose to purchase this item in the store as that gave me the option to try on a variety of PFDs and consult with store staff with any questions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality for the price We bought this jacket to replace one which flew out of the boat while we were driving. We had purchased some of these in the store last summer and were very pleased with them, so didn't hesitate to buy this one for the half-price deal that was offered. The ones we bought in the store were also 'half-price' so I conclude this is a gimmick used by Dick's to encourage sales. Don't know why they don't just list them for that price all of the time. True to size and the color stays bright as long as they are stored out of the sun. Very comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but hard to size My 9 year old son is not that big, but could no longer wear a youth life vest that was rated up to 90 lbs. He only weighs about 70 but it was too tight and uncomfortable. I purchases this vest because it was a reasonable price and seemed like a good design. We have used it one weekend and are pleased, but remain frustrated by the sizing. There are NO guidelines with these vests to help determine correct size (chest measurement, weight, etc.). Not sure this is Dick's fault, maybe USCG, but it would really be helpful to have such information.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy This vest was a great buy. My husband is 6'6 and 250 lbs. This vest kept him afloat effortlessly. He is not a strong swimmer at all and is afraid of drowning so I bought him this to feel more comfortable swimming in the ocean. He tried it out in a pool first and was so happy he agreed to go snorkeling in the Bahamas! It was great and he stayed out there for 2 hours without ever feeling scared. Only con was that it rubbed his skin around the armpits like a rug burn. Next time he will wear a shirt underneath. Other than that, great buy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Product is suspect. Nice life preserver but where the straps go into and under the neoprene it is not stitched down and I'm concerned it will start to rip at that weak spot. It seems like it's a design flaw. If I noticed this in the store I wouldn't have bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Life jacket!! This O'Brien life jacket is by far the best life jacket I have ever owned. It fit's very comfortably and keeps you warm when the weather is not as nice as you would want it. It is made of very durable Neoprene which lasts a very long time with proper care. I highly recommend this life jacket to anyone considering purchasing a new life jacket. It may cost a bit more than the competition but it is well worth it in the long run. Especially when your life literally depends on it.
