Product Description

Good looking, people-friendly, and built for performance, this vest is comfortable and sized to fit a broad range of physiques. Features include a generous neckline with breathable 3-D mesh collar, and a longer slim fit shell designed to lay comfortably across your shoulders and chest. The mesh yoke back strap helps prevent the collar from riding up. When inflated, the yellow bladder exposes a high-visibility reflective strip. An easy-access storage pocket (ideal for keys, wallet or VHF radio) adds an element of convenience to this vest’s stylish good looks. With an increased range of adjustment (30"-56" compared to 30"-52" of most other vests) more people can now benefit from the safety and convenience offered by this PFD.

I am a big guy, 6' 1" 275 lbs. this is not only the safest but most comfortable floation that will automaticly inflate when you hit the water even if you pass out, knocked out, or fall out! You need this especially if you are a larger person like me.

This product seems to have a lot of nice features- 2 inch belt, d-rings. The instructions say to check the bobbin and replace every 3 years. I received my pfd, checked the bobbin and it expires in less than 6 months.

      Great product, but be careful because the West Marine stores keep these on the shelves with expired bobbins. The two vests I purchase both had expired bobbins that expired a year before I purchased them.

            from Madison Wisconsin

            Comments about West Marine Coastal Automatic Inflatable Life Vest—Royal Blue/Dark Gray:

            This product seems to have a lot of nice features- 2 inch belt, d-rings. The instructions say to check the bobbin and replace every 3 years. I received my pfd, checked the bobbin and it expires in less than 6 months.

            Service and delivery comments:

            When I inquired about getting a replacement bobbin that wasn't almost out of date, I was emailed a link to the West Marine return policy and told that I should feel free to return the product. Come on West Marine, you can do better than that. I will give them 1 more chance to resolve the issue in a suitable manner, but West Marine is about to lose a customer. Not because the product was sent out almost ready to expire, but because of how the customer service department has handled the issue.
