Arrgggg! The picture is deceptive!! The vest recieved is 4-5" shorter than the one pictured and is more suitable for a 13-16 year old. Hey! I have a great idea! It would be super helpful if size details were listed with the product instead of "one size fits most adults" and a misleading photo.. I measured it to be about 22" high for those of you that might want to know. OK, so I rolled the dice and got burned. Other than size, if you are within the range of "most minature adults" the vest is fine for a costume, and the supplier was very prompt with delivery.
