Rated 5 out of 5 by from best pfd on the market I have used this pfd since 2004, and it is 2016 and there is still nothing wrong with any of the fabric,pockets or buckles, and is just as comfortable as the day I bought it. about to purchase another one for my guests to wear on my other kayak. I have used it in both the Atlantic and pacific oceans and many lakes in between. you really won't find a better made pfd. this is what the guides wear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from WELL CONSTRUCTED Lots of functional features. Roomy pockets. My cell phone fits perfectly in the 'tech' pouch. Haven't used it yet, but planning 'yak trip on Oswego River in May. Can't give it more stars until I field test it.
