        Very comfortable! Soft material and fast drying make this life jacket a winner. Loved the jacket so much we bought additional sizes for our friends to use.

        Comments about Deluxe Neoprene Watersports Life Vest, Mens PFD:

        Sizes are way off; a Large, although measured correctly at the chest, was way to small. Return policy is "you pay for shipping both ways unless defective." Not very competative.

          This life jacket is very comfortable but glad I bought it at a West Marine store. I wear a medium tee shirt and am 160 pounds but the Men's X large fit me perfectly. The medium and large were way to tight for me to feel comfortable. The zipper is very easy to engage. I love the jacket!

            Comments about Deluxe Neoprene Watersports Life Jacket, Mens PFD:

            It looks good and is well built but feels a little tight in my opinion, remember that sizes are not the same as in shirts so be careful and actually measure your chest if you can't try it on before buying [I'm Small size in shirts but Medium size for this vest (38")].

            Overall I think it was a good purchase and I would buy more and recommend it as long as you're careful to choose the right size as with any other vest.

            Service and delivery comments:

            I used Fedex International Priority shipping and it was unbelievable quick, it took WM 1 day to ship it, and another 3 days for Fedex to fly it to Toluca MX, import it and deliver it across the country at my house.
