This is a great PFD made just for Kayaking. The storage pockets on the front are perfect for small gear & I can fit my I-Phone XR sealed in a watertight bag in them just fine. The adjustable straps cover a wide range body sizes & the very generous openings on the arms allow for fluid free range of motion at all times while in the kayak. I choose the bright green & have gotten lots of compliments on how visible it is from a distance. I usually wear a size 17 1/2 dress shirt so I'm a larger guy & the size large fits me perfect. It's very light in weight & seems to take a beating just fine. I would recommend this PFD to anyone searching a high quality Kayaking specific vest.

Needed an extra PFD for guests different size from me. I have other Stohlquist PFD's so was confident this would be perfect, and it is.

I purchased this as an upgrade. I paddle primarily in the Monterey bay and northern CA coast with a looksha 17. I consider myself at an intermediate level. I'm pretty large (heavy) so having a pfd that doesn't turn into a turtle neck is nice. The design makes re-entry and rolling much easier. The padding high on the back lets the kayak back rest do it's job. Arms are wide open so nothing gets is the way of your stroke. The green color is visible from space.

I use this PFD for recreational kayaking mostly. This is a nice jacket for the price. I really like that it has enough adjustments to get a comfortable, snug fit. I'm a big guy and lesser PFDs tend to get bulges or gaps that are uncomfortable or get in the way of my paddling. I would recommend this jacket to anyone wanting something beyond the basics, but who doesn't need all the bells and whistles of a more expensive jacket.

This is a great PFD for general use. The jacket is well constructed and comfortable. I like my jackets tight so they move with me. This jacket has enough adjustments to get the perfect fit without being overly complex. The only think I would add is a few more attachment points. I like to attach my phone or an MP3 player while I paddle. The jacket has a D-ring inside the left pocket, but another would be nice as well.
