      Gave this to my dad who is 6'7" and 280lbs. Had no problem fitting him and wasn't awkward in wearing it. Hope he never has to use it, but good to know that it fits him well if so!

      Indicator broken

      By Stumble Inn

      from Vermont

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

        Cons

        • Cartridge App
        • Cartridge Poorly Made

        Best Uses

          Comments about West Marine Deep Water Automatic Inflatable Life Vest—Navy Blue/Dark Gray:

          When we attempted to arm the cartridge the plastic ring on the cartridge broke off. Therefore the indicator stays red rather than turning green and we don't really know if it is armed. I regret my purchase.
