Some loose stitching, I wonder how long it will last

Product seems good but quality control needs improvement. Some of the stitching has loose loops and will probably snag on something. For the price, this shouldn't happen.

PFD VXP Race

This is an excellent PFD. It is light weight and very comfortable. I use it for kayaking and stand up boarding. I found the customer service to be excellent. I live in Nova Scotia Canada, and it was delivered to me within a week. Tremendous delivery service. I just recently purchased the water bladder to fit this PFD, and again, it arrived within the week and is effectively made to fit the back pouch of the PFD. I will definitely continue to purchase products from this company. I would highly recommend them for your paddling requirements in clothing and other accessories.

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.
