RedHead Realtree MAX-5 Mesh Life Jacket for Men
Great value, sizing wildly off-base
I haven't used it yet - assuming it floats like it supposed to. Fit and finish look fine. My comments are just to reinforce the message that others have posted repeatedly. I take a small or medium in most shirts/jackets (39") chest, flat gut. I just pulled the "large"-sized life jacket from the box and had to hold my breath to zip it up. I will pass this life jacket along to my partner and order an XL for me.

Very BAD purchase - TWICE
Size TOTALLY misrepresented. A medium THEN a large would not fit my 5'9" - 150# dripping wet husband...would have to have gone to their 48-52" chest to actually fit him. Ended up returning the product to BASS PRO (money very nicely refunded) and bought a medium NON-REALTREE life jacket that fits perfectly. Be prepared to buy at LEAST 2 sizes too large to fit if you like this style.

i ordered late for christmas, but the merchandise got here on time. it was great. reviews for this product said the sizes ran a little small, which i found to be true, but my spouse is losing weight, so that was o.k. i am always satisfied w/bass pro, whether it be online or the store. the store is just amazing w/the fish, water features & the waterfall. bass pro rocks!!!

Nice vest, but sizes are small!
This is a nice looking vest and my husband really liked the style. But check your sizes carefully, it runs REALLY small. He wears a XL to 2XL, depending on fit. We ordered the 2XL so he would have plenty of room with jackets, coats, etc.. This vest is so small, it barely fits around him and he would have to wear coats, etc. over it. Considering returning.
