        I have looked at Bass pro, Cabela's and various outdoor stores for an xxx large, self inflating PFD. In my pusuit I finally come back home to my old faithful West Marine. The store in Baton Rouge has the best sales per son in the business. We found it and on sale. Halleluah. Thank for being a friendly, knowledgeable service to boaters , fisherman and watersport enthusiast.

              I purchased the life jacket to comply with the rules of an offshore race. The price was reasonable. It is comfortable. I have not inflated it yet to see how it works in the water. A nice life jacket.

                          I wanted my husband to have a new life jacket for fishing and whale watching in the open ocean. The water can be much rougher than the sound & I worried that if he was hurt, he would not be able to inflate the life jacket he had, that did not auto-inflate. This is a high quality jacket. The 35 lbs. lift is extremely important to make sure that it will hold him high in the water and the D rings are available if he needs to be lifted from the water. We are both impressed with the comfort of the vest.
