Information on the item was accurate in terms of sizing and it is exactly what we expected. We were given regular updates regarding delivery and it arrived in time and in perfect order.
Tested this PFD last weekend in some very lumpy water. It was comfortable and I did not feel over-heated. The pocket for the water bladder is huge and could easily take a 3L bladder.The front pockets are very tight and not really suitable for a mobile phone. I put my phone in a water-proof pouch, attached it to a shoulder strap and tucked it under the PFD.
Great for OC1 paddling did not restrict movement
Very impressed with this jacket. Comfortable to wear,, does not hinder my paddling style in any way. Like the two separate pockets on the front.
Our club purchased these vests in 2017 so I am familiar with the vest and decided to purchase the same vest for myself as I found this vest comfortable and suitable for me as a Dragonboat paddler.
