Not to many people are talking about this PFD. It is a dark horse on the water, but a beast in it’s own right, holding its own amongst the Green Vest and other PFD’s of high regard in the ‘Rescue Vest’ category. Great rib protection. Big Zippered pockets. And my personal favorite, a stamp of approval from the US Coast Guard for a Zipper side entry. No confounded rats nest of straps and clips. This PFD is clean and functional. It also comes with the best shoulder padding on the market and some bomber reinforced points on areas of constant tension and use.
