    I have one of these life jackets, and it's definitely a quility built life jacket. I tested it by jumping into the lake one day, even though I cannot swim. Sure enough it supported me in the water without any trouble. If general safety is your only purpose in looking for a life jacket, this one is a safe bet.

    Comfort varies with this jacket. While they are more comfortable than less expensive life jackets, they are not particularly comfortable during rowing. The life jacket has a tendency to slip up from my waist during rows, even with a secure fit. If you're just spectating in boat and not doing anything, however, this jacket does just fine.

    Alternatives to this around the same price is Cabela's Full Motion Vest. It allows more freedom of movement during rowing, and is much more comfortable.

    this is a cheap and effective back up life vest which i use in my canoe to stay safe and legal. I don;t wear it unless conditions dictate that i should, because it isn't the most comfortable thing to wear when paddling. I would not recommend this for kayaking because of its shape. I tried kayaking in this and it just didn't make it.

    I bought two of these recently for use in a two- person kayak used in flat water padding (lakes and rivers). The vests are well- made, lightweight and comfortable (well, as comfortable as a vest can be in the Florida heat in July) and were not "in the way" while paddling the craft around. In the water, the vest will keep you in the proper "reclining on your back with head up" position and float you like a cork. Just be certain to give the three friction straps a snug pull so the vest won't tend to ride up on you in the water.
    Unlike a previous reviewer, I felt the vest was quite comfortable while paddling the kayak, but perhaps this may vary with the size and shape of the wearer. All in all, this product is good value for the money, and I would recommend it for general water safety in a canoe or kayak.

    Okay...it's a life jacket. It's light, looks good and could just save your life if you go overboard. Why pay $150 for something when these will serve the same purpose for a fraction of that cost? We kayak in Hawaii on the Pacific Ocean so these are pretty much standard equipment. They are comfortable when paddling out to the deep water to watch whales.

    these are adequate for my use. We ordered the largest size and they are really too small for an adult of normal weight.

    I don't see how this is oversized. It looks like any other regualr sized jacket. Big people may want to go mega-sized if they make them. It barely comes down to my lower ribcage. I have a 50 inch chest. 62 inch max??? I want a picture of that.

    Update: Big people...check out the HO Skis infinite series. Their 5xl is monsterous. The 4xl was too big for me actually, so they are actually true to size.

    I am 6'2'' 185 LBS and this thing was not even close to fitting me! My wife is 5'6'' and it was too small for her and did not accommodate for her bust. This would be perfect for teenagers and adults under 5'6'' I DO NOT RECOMMEND FOR ADULTS!

    It keeps me boat legal for less. Nice life vest for the money. The only critique is that the oversized ones aren't much bigger than normal adult size.
