I was on the fence between small/medium and large/xl. Called NRS and they explained that the actual size of the vest is the same, it's the strap size that is different. Purchased the large/xl size. When it arrived, it fit well and the straps allow room for layered clothing if I choose to wear a jacket or wet suit under it. If I purchased a small/medium, would have fit with a shirt but may be too tight with more clothing. (can't say for sure since I didn't try the medium). Overall, I would rather have longer hanging straps than too tight of a PFD.
A few reasons I did not rate it 5 stars:
No reflective material on this PFD. Even though they did this intentionally, my safety mindset doesn't understand selling a high vis PFD and intentionally degrading its night time reflectivity. Also, something about the thickness and shape of the front flotation made deep water reentry slightly more akward when wearing this. Something about the front, top of the PFD would catch on the kayaks side gunwale when pulling myself perpendicularly across when getting back on. Lastly, I found it a little difficult to fit this PFD to me. It has plenty of adjustments, but no matter how I wear it there is still definite ride-up on the torso after getting in the water. I'm overweight so that might factor into it, as I'm sure fitment varies for different body types.
Overall I highly reccommend this PFD. After factoring in the years of use you're likely to get with it, the great comfort factor, and knowing I'm less likely to lose my pliers or knife due to the attachment points, the cost makes this a worthwhile investment.
I am updating this review after owning it about a year. This thing is very durable for the thin material. I've crashed in the surf, and in the river and this thing kept me floating so I could swim. I really do enjoy all the pockets. More importantly this jacket fits me well and when I paddle it does not restrict my motion. I believe that's why I like it most.
