Rated 2 out of 5 by Olebiker Comfortable but. . .
The vest is so slim and comfortable you will forget that you are wearing it. The problem with the vest is that, if you get caught in a hard rain, you have to bring it inside and hang it up. If you leave it in a boat compartment or in your truck it will inflate on its own. I have converted mine to manual operation because recharging kits are just too expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by motoman Very comfortable!
I disagree with the previous review. I find this vest FAR more comfortable than other vests I tried on before purchasing this one. After just a couple minutes of wearing it, I forget I have it on. I mainly fish at night throught the summer, and the temps can still be in the 90's. Even in the heat, it's still very comfortable. Great item for the price and excellent piece of mind. With as comfortable and as lightweight as these new vests are, there's no excuse for not wearing one all the time. It's a shame, in this day and age to hear about fatalities on the water; that could be prevented if people would wear their life vest.

This vest rubs on the back of my neck due to its bunched up design. Drives me nuts. Get the ones that lay flat across the back, they are very comfortable and highly recomended.
