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.

      Meets USCG requirements and easy on the budget. I'm a good sized guy and with some adjusting, got it to fit me as comfortably as a PFD can be.
