I bought this for the little woman in my life to wear when we go boating. She liked it and uses it. Unlike the padded vest we had before that she complained was to hot.. What was really perfect was the color Purple that was one of her colors. I was Speechless when she told me that.. Good Product easy to fit and has not had a false inflate as I type..

Will not be able to comment on how it works untill it inflates in an emergency. The harness seems ery tight on me. I am about 52 chest. I only bought one because my wife could use it if it didn't fit me. It doesn't seem that you sell a little larger size 52- 56 chest untill you get into the very expensive ofshore vests?

      Been boating for 50 years - 4 people have gone overboard on my boat in all sorts of conditions. We do not leave the dock without a pfd.

        Comments about West Marine Inshore Automatic/Manual Inflatable Life Jacket, Lavender:

        I wanted something less restrictive and definitely cooler for kayaking, it happens to be 102 f today and who would want to wear a tight and heavily padded life jacket, plus I found them too bulky and it was harder to paddle with a jacket on, yet regulations require a jacket and whistle. I love my new life pdf's, I bought three, a red and a grey/black and my personal one is the lavender, it weight nothing and doesn't restrict my paddling or reaching for things while in my kayak, I'm very pleased with it.

            Great gift for a kayaking friend. Much thanks!

            I think it would be very helpful if WM came out with a pouch specifically designed to contain a knife and flashlight on the belt of these vests. Some brands have a pouch build in, which is even more helpful I think.
            Your thoughts?

                  Got this for my wife who is not a good swimmer but does not to wear the big orange life jacket. It's a good compromise between safety and looking cool on the boat.

                        My dad bought this life vest for me to wear while fishing. He had a had time keeping me in a regular best because they are hot and uncomfortable. This best is so comfortable I forget I have it on. I wore it over 10 hrs straight and it never got hot or uncomfortable. No excuses to not to be wearing a life vest.
