XPS Platinum Series Life Jacket for Men
Great life vest
I bought this vest as my backup life saving device and after wearing it I have made it my first and primary device. The ribbed back support is very comfortable while driving or fishing, and the fleece pockets are great on a cold morning, and the cell phone pocket is a great idea along with the style of this jacket make it the best. Finally found a good quality and durable life jacket that I like. Thanks Bass Pro!

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!

It saved my life
I don't tend to write reviews, but I felt I had to say Thank You on this product. I have a high performance bass boat that will run in excess of 100 mph. On 1/2/09, I was making a speed run / testing a prop. I had gotten the boat up to 95 mph when I hit some lose surface trash in the water with the lower unit/prop. The motor popped up out of the water and the nose of the boat fell immediately causing the boat to go into a violent hook. The action caused my seat to break free and I went flying out of the boat and into the water. I was told that I flew over 40 feet before hitting the surface of the water where I began cartwheeling and tumbling across the surface of the water before the momentum stopped and I went down 7 or so feet and than surfaced. I was wearing this Life Jacket and quite frankly it saved my life. I probably hit the water at approximately 115 mph with the slingshot effect of the turn. The jacket stayed together, no straps broke, did not rip, stayed firmly on and brought me back up. In short saved my life. Thank You BPS for a well made jacket!
Request: BPS, Please consider taking this jacket a step further and creating a "head up" flotation Jacket for high performance boaters or in-case such an accident occurs and the occupant is unconscious. If you do I will be the first in line!!!!!
Thanks again, it proved to be a well made jacket that trully saved my life!

I ordered the Life vest with the straps that go between my legs like on the childrens life vest because I am a BIG man and all life vests float up on me where they are to high.
This vest was expensive but for the person that doesn't swim well and still likes to get in the water once in a while to cool off or to be in with the family playing in the water "THIS IS THE TICKET".
The Bass Pro shop is the only place I knew I could find what I needed and I will recommend them to everyone I know.
Your mail order service is great and the shipping the fastest I have ever experienced THANK YOU,
