NOT HAPPY

By ROBIN

Verified Reviewer

Had to order as not in store stock. Chose this because of the wider range of adjustment size. I will be returning it in the morning

It arrived unarmed with the CO2 cylinder supplied separate. I followed the instructions to re-arm. How/Why do you/should you have to re-arm something never used yet! OK so in attaching the CO2 cylinder, it goes off, shoots out of my hand and flys right across the room, narrowly missing a TV screen.
This is NOT USER FRIENDLY, I wanted a manufactured item ready to use, not a kit to make one myself!!
I come from the UK but live in USA. I am not used to the restrictions and USCG limitations etc thsat make it so difficult to buy and use a thing as simple as a lifejacket. I bought this because the much better UK made jacket that I brought with me is not USCG approved and because I cannot buy a simple re-rm kit for it here in Disneyland. Then I also see that despite being USCG approved that doesn't apply to the built in harness which anyway can only be used with a tether line less than 6ft long.
