I would recommend getting ANY kayak PFD. This one is awesome and is super comfy. Of course people are built differently and that needs to be considered. I see too many paddlers out there either without a PFD on or wearing one made for waterskiing - PFDs designed for kayaking will make your trip much more comfortable. This vest does not ride up, it doesn't bump my hat in the back and I don't have to fight with it. I put it on, drop my keys in the pockets, zip up and forget it until Im hauling out.

Lighter colors seem to fade a bit quicker.

Good vest with a lot of room for adjustments. Does not restrict my movement and I have had no feeling of restriction on my ability to breathe. I've worn this vest for several hours and didn't even notice it was there.
