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.

SIZING SIZING SIZING
If you read this, my goal is to save you the cost of returning the item for exchange. I read the previous reviews and thought I could "fit" into a LARGE. I weight 175 lbs and am 5'10". When I put the LARGE vest on, the two halves of the zipper were literally 4" apart. I returned it and got an XL and it fit snuggly. If I gain another 10 lbs., I'll never be able to zip it up. There are two clasps that would gain you about two more inches, but you would not be able to zip it up. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE heed this warning....it will save you the return freight costs.

Max4 life jacket
Quality is good, great mesh shoulder for shooting out of boat but sizes run really small buy at least one size bigger than you want.

Sizes run small. When ordering buy at least a size larger maybe two sizes larger.
