        This PFD is very comfortable and my wife likes the color! I would give it 5 stars instead 4 but I'm holding back until I find out if it works as advertised...which I hope I never have to find out. The ability to switch from manual to automatic is a great feature.

          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..

            Purchased for my wife and I to use in the coastal waters of the Carolina's. Very comfortable compared to traditional life preservers such that we will actually wear when offshore or in rough waters or threatening weather.

            Comments about Inshore Automatic/Manual Inflatable Life Vest, Purple:

            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?
