These life vests are advertised and specified for adults but are way too small for even an average size male. The specs say up to a 52 inch chest, but I have a 42 inch chest and feel like I just put on a child's vest. These should be advertised as children's vests and sold as such. The pricing was attractive and the quality was reflective of the pricing, but the small sizing made them unusable, so I returned them to the store. I'd purchased two sets for spares in my boats, but I'll look elsewhere for that now.

        These life jackets are of the quality you would expect them to be. They were a great deal at the sale price. The only negative is that they run small for an adult jacket.

                  Perfect for kids.
                  The manufacturer admits as much on telephone.
                  Adults are best advised to purchase something cut properly for an adult man (or woman's) body.
