My wife uses this PFD every time we go out, because she really is not a good swimmer. This piece of gear gives her enough confidence to go out by herself, on the days I can't go with her. She finds it a bit warm, which tends to be a problem with PFDs in general, but it was reasonably priced and it's not uncomfortable for her to wear. It could have used some pockets, though.
