Rated 5 out of 5 by Calcasieu1 Excellent!!!
This life jacket is 5 stars!! Very comfortable, and lots of pockets, but they are well thought out, and streamlined. Not just a bunch of stuff sewed on. The leg straps roll up and stow away in little pouches at the base of the back. Took the jacket on/off several times and threw it on the seat during a tournament, and they never came out. The fleece lined collar is nice too. Should really appreciate being able to remove it when it's 115F at Toledo Bend this summer! With the cut of this jacket, and light weight, you hardly realize you are wearing it. Motion is not restricted either like a lot of other vests. Definitely worth every penny!

Definitely recommend these life jackets. The lego straps help keep the jacket from rising up into your neck. great Idea for when fall in water too!

I used this vest during the 2010 season and it never let me down. The pockets are generous and well laid out. I had my vest stuffed with tools, knives, fishing lines, gloves ... you name it and never encountered any comfort problems. The fleece neckguard came in handy on a fly-in trip In May when the weather featured snow and wind gusts. Plus, it looks cool.

My chest measures 43" and I wear a medium shirt. I bought the platinum lifevest in a size large. It fits well with a light jacket on and is a little bit big with just a tshirt on. I hope this helps you decide.
My vest is an XL. I couldn't find a Max. wt. listed but it did have a minimum of 90 Lbs. If one uses the leg straps, which is a feature on racing vests, you can't come out of it. The vest has been tested at 50 or 55 MPH.
