I was very impressed with the fit and appearance of this vest. I bought this nylon vest as a "spare" for those who might want to ride my waverunner. I have a Stearn neoprene vest that I personally use, but thought I would give this one a try. I was very impressed with how comfortable the vest was to wear -- very light weight and not bulky. Also, looks good on. . . not awkward like many pfd's (if you care about such things).
