    Comments about Kent Type I Commercial Life Vest, Adult, Over 90lb.:

    Not at all what I envisioned. I weigh 175 lb. and have a normal build and this is still too tight and restrictive which for me discourages use. Waste of money.

    Also West Marine decided to ship this FEDEX smart post which dragged the shipping from 2 days to 9 days.
