I noticed a lot of folks at the sailing club I just joined wearing this model or similar ones and they spoke well of them. The old, three-panel, wrap-around type that I had was just too hot when out sailing, so I purchased this new one last month when it was on sale. So comfortable to wear, I hardly know it's on; almost like wearing suspenders. Since I like to sail solo a lot and promised my wife to always have my PFD on, this makes it easier to keep my promise and practice safe boating.

    Im an electrician and work on rowboats every day. I wanted something that didn't restrict movement and was lightweight during the hot months. This PFD does just that. I get lots of comments on it.

        My wife and I purchased these for use on our sailboat. The assembly of the canister to the life vest was straight forward. The sizing is appropriate and it is lightweight and not cumbersome to wear. A nice life vest.

                  I am a Marine Deputy on large Michigan lakes. This is a comfortable life vest so it can be worn whether boating or fishing without being bulky or uncomfortable.
                  A very reasonably priced item could save your life.
