My 8 year old is very lean and has a chest circumference of 22 inches. What chest diameter does this vest fit?

Asked by: jgodes
According to Stohlquist, the Drifter PFD for youths is designed to be fitted by weight range rather than chest size . If your child fits the weight range, this PFD is the correct size.

Is there an adjustable chest strap which buckles behind the zipper, out of sight, or is the only buckling strap the one at the bottom? In other words, if the zipper is unzipped, is there a strap holding the PFD on the wearer at the chest? Thanks.

Asked by: Tmbrwuf
This PFD does have cross-chest cinch harness to better position the vest.
