Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The boy is out in the water all day sailing and a life jacket is mandatory for the entire day. He wears it and does not ever complain. It took some adjusting to get the jacket to fit right on my sons small frame, but we have a lot of room to grow and he is happy to put his life jacket on every weekend. The jacket fits snug around the waist and does not ride up and choke him like ski vests did. He is able to have full range of motion and not have the jacket get in his way. When he did flip his boat he was able to swim and get the boat back upright without the bulky life jacket getting in his way.
Bought this for a 6-year-old, 55# kid. It popped up in the back repeatedly because I think he's just too small. We tried every adjustment would could manage, but it just kept popping up. We'll see once he's a little bigger if it fits better.
Fits both of my kids well, though it can be a little difficult for them to put on and take off. One of the zippers did break after a little use, but I suspect that it was because one of the kids stepped on it while on the floor of our boat. I believe it was our own negligence that caused the damage to the zipper retainer, thus I did not return the product. If there was one thing I would change, I would add soft neoprene padding in the neck area to prevent the stiff fabric from rubbing the skin and causing irritation.
