Great set of spare life jackets. Was out with a large group and a friend pulled this out of his boat as a set of spares. I purchased a set for my boat when I got home. I like that they are more than the normal red spare PFD and can be used for water sports. They may not be quite as comfy as a nice neoprene vest, but they are compact to store and very adjustable and they are not uncomfortable.

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.

Too small

By Sally

About Me Advanced

Pros

  • Cheap

Cons

  • Too Small to feel safe

Best Uses

  • Satisfy Safety Regs

Comments about West Marine Runabout Life Jacket 3-Pack:

About all these are good for is to satisfy boating regulations to have enough life jackets on board and they can be stowed in the convenient carry bag. Very disappointed but purchased in USA and live in Canada.

            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.
