We bought one of these (on sale) to fill in a gap in our lineup of PFD sizes - because the right size is very important for safety!

It has all the standard features (pockets, high back, etc) that are found on all paddle specific vests. While it is at the bottom of their priceline it does not feel cheap. The zippers are sturdy and the fabric/floats feel substantial.

We put a 250lb man in the XL sized PFD and he floated comfortably. A good choice for safety.
