This was purchased to replace an older Extrasport kayaking jacket. The side style zipper is easier to get in and out of than the front zipper on my old life jacket. The floatation foam could be slightly thinner to make the jacket more comfortable when sitting in the kayak. I prefer the old PFD adjustment system for the straps, I would rather adjust the shoulder and chest seperately. For the price this was hard to be inspite of the shortcomings of the adjustment and foam thickness.
TYPE III PFDS are for general boating or the specialized activity that is marked on the device such as water skiing, hunting, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and others. Good for calm, inland waters, or where there is a good chance for fast rescue. Designed so that wearing it will complement your boating activities:

I believe the exact wording is "Boating, Paddling and Kayaking" If you zoom the main picture, you can actually read most of the label...
