    Haven't used it on our boat yet, because we don't get the boat until later this week. Did use it to support myself in the water in order to work on my boat slip.

      Comments about Windward Paddle Life Jacket, Red:

      I purchased this PFD primarily one purpose, as my main PFD when going kayaking either for just a few hours at a time or for longer trips.

      I have only used it a few times, but for the price, I like it's fit and feel.

      Of course, I have not had it long enough to determine how well it will hold up over long term and hard use, with that yet to still be determined, but based on my years of buying West Marine branded items, having always gotten good service from them and based on the low price I paid for this piece--if it gives me a few years, that will be more than sufficient evidence of good quality and value.

            Great multi-use vest for the money.
            The large front pockets are great for storing my waterproof phone case, gloves and knife.
