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?

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

    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.

        So glad I bought this. Use it kayaking and it is so much better than the traditional life vest. Lightweight, barely know its on, unrestricted movement, very comfortable.

                This is a great PFD, expecially for someone not wanting to be hindered by a standard vest. With this jacket it gets worn because its not in the way or to hot. This makes for a safer boat.

                    After many years of using a bulky vest this slim line vest has helped make my trips more enjoyable. Often times I would keep the old vest with me but not on me, this one is one all the time. Great price, nice color, slim line, I love that I can make it manual only so it does not inflate if it gets wet while paddling.

                      The light weight and the small size is perfect for us during these very hot days in south Louisiana. The manual method is perfect for us, we like to keep out jackets on while riding so blowing them up allows us to do so easily. The first day on the lake that we used them we were stopped by the Game Warden and they were impressed because they rarely see anyone with these type jackets. The sale price was GREAT!

                        It's great to have the reassurance of a self inflating life vest that's so comfortable to wear in all conditions , you forget it's there. You and your sailing guests are more likely to use it all the time, unlike the bulky orange floats that end up in storage.
