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.

    Perfect for use on boat during crabbing or salmon/steelhead fishing as it does not restrict arm motion and does not get in the way when reeling in fish or pulling up crab pot.

                Have not used them yet. Inshore auto or manual is what i like about them. They were on a big sale so i pulled the trigger at christmas online. Westmarine has quality stuff and they have it on hand. You dont have to fight to find things to get ur projects done.

                  This is your best option for open water boating. After 2 hours you forget it's on. I've never needed to use it and hope I never will.

                      I have never seen worse instructions regarding a product. The installation of the CO 2 cartridge was very difficult to understand, and there were no discussions about what the indicators meant.
