Update: The pocket space on the Moxie is tiny in comparison to the Diva. I purchased both, interested in the fit comparisons. I wanted to have a pocket big enough to have a small (2-3oz) bottle of sunscreen & my paddling gloves. The sunscreen would not fit. I had ample space in the Diva for 2 small bottles of sunscreen & my gloves. I never took this one out on the water, so I can't comment on comfort with paddling.
The idea of the "adjust a bust" is great but it feels "odd". I'm a 38-40 small C. It has hotdog-like foam inserts to keep your bust in place. Not sure if I like it or not. I prefer the buckles over zipper closures but the very bottom buckle is actually under the vest. I've always used an astral unisex pfd before... they were much roomier. *The Diva, even with a zipper, didn't feel quite as 'odd' when I had it on.
There's a booklet attached with lame advice about why you should use a pfd but only a tiny hangtag about the actual pfd. Would have appreciated more info - discovered the whistle attached inside the pocket. (If I need my whistle, unzipping pocket to get it out seems kinda challenging)
