I use the vest while sailing various small boats, kayaking and while using my dinghy. I like the comfort and light weight and the relatively small size for when I store it. I have one with a harness as well but this is more comfortable for when a harness is not used. I don't have any negative comments about it. It meets my needs and expectations.

      Fish a lot by myself and this will be more comfortable and light weight than other types. The automatic inflation is nice to have, hopefully I won't have to use it.

        As fishermen aged 16-60, we needed a PFD that allowed unrestricted range of motion and lightweight enough to allow good ventilation on warmer summer excursions. The West Marine device fit the bill precisely.

            Having a light, comfortable pfd that does not get in the way is really the only thing that can get a guy like me to wear one. Fished all day with this on and have not complaints- I can only assume it actually works for floatation as this was not tested

                I bought two of these for my 10 and 9 year old sons. They love mobility that these provide. They also say the light weight makes it comfortable to wear for our weekly fishing trips. (we go at least 8 hours at a time). The look of these are great too. They both have the grey and blue style, which they love.

                Wife was after me to get a vest that I could wear when out fishing alone after a slip from the boat one afternoon. Only downside it that I must wear a shirt so that it doesn't rub but, other than that I forget I have it on.
