    I received this PFD back in March, and my initial impression was that it was well made and great construction. The Retroglide made the PFD comfortable to wear, and didn't cause it to be crooked or ride up. The biggest issue with this PFD, and why I give it a 3/5 stars is because of the bulk. I do a lot of angling kayaking, so figured the extra pockets on the front would be great to store lures, however it impeded my ability to paddle efficiently on Lake Michigan. I had to hold the paddle straight in front of me, with my arms stretched for the shaft not to rub the PFD.

    After much frustration, I figured this PFD would be best for a boat or possibly a canoe. I ended up getting a Kokatat Maximus and could not be happier with my choice. Although I still have not used it, I can tell the slimmer design will make paddling more efficient.

    While this is a very well made PFD, it is very bulky and heavy. I purchased it for a fishing for a kayak. It is to bulky to wear comfortably in a kayak, so I returned it.

    Sale items from Sierra are always a great bargain. I volunteer to instruct basic paddling and water safety so I am always adding to my PFD collection.
    I purchased these fishermen's vests for use by non paddling passengers in canoes. The stiff, reinforced backplate is ideal for those sitting in the bottom and leaning against a thwart; a built-in backrest. I was amazed at the volume of the front pockets. Good for wading but,even empty, in my mind, represent a hazard in any boat other than a wide open canoe of skiff. If I put anything in them it may be pieces of closed cell foam. Not for extended paddling or rowing. Well made and lots of floatation. All-in-one strap system, I feel, is a needless innovation.

    It is made very well! If it would have fit, I would have kept it! But if you are a 52 jacket size or greater and have a beer belly like I do, it is probably not going to fit! Seems like the 2xl is a little over stated! I would say an xl size!
