Rated 3 out of 5 by from More "green" than "steel"... This jacket isn't bad if you're wearing a shirt under it. But I was looking for something that would be comfortable against my skin. This was so scratchy and had a bunch of threads poking me. Also the front zipper doesn't really "lock" or fully nest up at the top of the zip. The high mesh back was really nice for my kayak seat. But it was too uncomfortable keep. The green shown in the picture is a little misleading. It' s lot more green than steel. There are a lot of adjustments on this which was nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fitting PFD I have been shopping for a fishing pfd, and my local REI just stocked up on all of the current models. I tried everyone on and not one came close to the comfort of the Ebb. I really appreciate the simplicity of the design and how low profile it is. I have been paddling for over 30 years, whitewater, sea kayak, fishing. It's no rescue vest, but perfect for most recreational paddling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safety on the Water at a Reasonable Price I find that it fits me very well and it complements the Seal Sprayskirt that I also ordered and purchased. I haven't had to actually use it in the water yet, but that is because I really work on keeping my kayak upright and empty of water. Kayaking is so much more enjoyable that way. Still the USCG ratings inspire confidence.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well I bought this vest for canoeing. It fits well and has many adjustments. Paddling while wearing it was fine and it did not hinder me. It was also the cheapest vest they had in the store at the time, so I don't know if there is a less expensive one that works just as well.
