XPS Platinum Series Life Jacket for Men
Saved my life.
I was ejected from my boat on a cold November day and the boat capsized. Thankfully I was wearing this PFD.
I used to be one of those guys who rarely wore a PFD, but my old lady made me promise to always wear one. I purchased this one as it was comfortable and not too bulky.
Buying this PFD was really one of the best decisions that I've ever made in my life, and if it wasn't for this jacket (and the help of another boater) I would probably not be here to write this review.

Great life vest
I bought this vest as my backup life saving device and after wearing it I have made it my first and primary device. The ribbed back support is very comfortable while driving or fishing, and the fleece pockets are great on a cold morning, and the cell phone pocket is a great idea along with the style of this jacket make it the best. Finally found a good quality and durable life jacket that I like. Thanks Bass Pro!

Great Vest! I took this vest on a canoe trip yesterday and had a great experience. It is defiantly a warm vest. But if you remove the fleece collar that zips off it was much cooler. I love the durable heavy duty zipper and the three buckles in the chest. The thing that sold me on this vest was the twin crotch straps. Crotch straps help to keep the vest from riding up over your head when you are in the water. Let me tell ya they defiantly work at that. The crotch straps make this vest one of the best on the market. If you have ever noticed kids life jackets have the same crotch strap that makes their vest safer too. Another feature that is great about this vest is the fleece lined pockets! Did I mention how many pockets are on this vest? Probably about a dozen! Being that I took this vest on a canoe trip it got a good workout with the few tips we made. It preformed wonderfully as well. Once we tipped in a deep pool after hitting a log. The vest had enough buoyancy to pull you up to the top and float you on your back. And with the crotch straps fastened appropriately it kept the vest in place! I have read that the sizing of these vests seems to be off. I disagree. I have a 40" chest and I have a size Medium. Fits great actually! I would defiantly recommend this vest for any water activity!
