This Stearns life vest is functional but does not offer the fit and comfort of the higher quality life vests. It is alright for leisurely lake kayaking but not sufficient for river kayaking. The adjustments could be better quality to provide a better, more secure fit.
This is an inexpensive yet fairly comfortable life vest. The vest is very basic, has no pockets and feels a little scratchy against bare skin, but what else can you expect from a vest that costs around $20. As far as function goes, it has kept me afloat in the upright position when needed.
I wanted a nice looking, comfortable life vest I could throw in the back of my boat and wear as needed. For $24, this did the trick. It floats, adjusts to different sizes, and is an all-around great life vest. Sure there are more expensive versions out there, but unless you are going to be wearing them 100% of the time, this should suffice. And even if you do plan on wearing this all the time, it's comfortable.
