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.

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

    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.
