I use the Stohlquist Asea for kayak fishing. I wanted a vest that had buckles rather than a zipper, and this was one of only a few made. The adjustability is a plus. Pockets are more than adequate, without being so big that they hinder a self-rescue. Durability is good, but not great. These vests last me about 4-5 years before the color becomes extremely faded, and the reflective patches starts to unravel.
