The XPS Platinum Series Flotation Vest is well worth the purchase price. The comfort of fit, ease of adjustment and multiple waterproof storage pockets makes it a vest for all seasons. A feature that I really like is the removable collar. The collar fifs tight and helps keep you warm during high speed early morning runs or it can be removed to aid in air circulation and help keep you cool.
A great value for the money.

I have a hard time finding a quality lifejacket that fits well. This jacket is comfortable and has the feel of being extremely well made. I like the zipper and straps closure and the "D" ring to attach my kill switch. This jacket replaces one that has worn out that cost almost twice as much and it is every bit as high quality.

This is the most comfortable life jacket I have ever owned. I love the adjustability without excess straps hanging out. Easy to wear over several layers of winter clothing and adjusts to fit over just a t-shirt. I like being able to just zip off the collar. I'm not a big fan of pockets on life jackets, but these are low profile and I don't even know they are there. Two of the pockets are big enought to store a map comfortably. I have already recomended to several friends and am getting one for my wife. I have not tested in the water and hopefully will never have to.

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.
