What a perfect fit. This vest can be snugged up across the chest and still be barely noticeable to the wearer; It becomes a part of your body. Big, easy to access pocket on front holds your essentials. Plenty of bouyancy, Lots of mobility, and it looks pretty sharp, too.
This is my second Edge PFD. The biggest plus is that it does not impede movement for dragonboat and for me (5'4 woman) is more comfortable than other brands I tried on. If you take care of your gear (rinsing after use and hang to dry out of direct sun) it holds up well. I would have given a higher rating but with both the old and new models there have been chafing problems. For the new Edge, the zipper stop on the right side chafes the right underarm.
