VXP Review

Great lightweight PFD. Slim so it doesn't interfere with any paddling motion. The back panel packet for a hydration bladder water source is great for those that do long distance races. Has built in loops for the hydration tube. Big roomy front pocket for keys, phone, energy bars.

VXP Race PFD Life Jacket - Black

Fits well when appropriate size is selected, good adjustability. Large front pocket is great, fits a large tripper bottle, great for marathons.

Perfect

Fits well and allows for movement. The large front pocket holds my phone easily. Also the inbuilt attachment sites inside the pocket, allows you to tie your waterproof phone case to the PFD. It’s reassuring to know that your phone won’t come out if you happen to go for a swim.

Fit Tips

If one of your body measurements is in between two sizes, order the smaller size for a tighter fit or the larger size for a looser fit. If your body measurements for hips and waist correspond to two different suggested sizes, order the one indicated by your hip measurement.

How To Measure

WAIST: Measure around the narrowest part (typically where your body bends side to side), keeping the tape horizontal.
HIPS: Measure around the widest part of your hips, keeping the tape horizontal.
CHEST: Measure the fullest area of your chest. Stand up straight and breath normally.
