    I love this PDF. Great range of motion, put it on and forget it. Nice extra pockets, great visability. Its very comfortable and adjustable ( I am very big). The only downside is when wet, it does take a while to dry just a like Neoprene.

    As the item was way too large, I returned it unused. However, I believe, even if the item were sized correctly, it would likely hike up while waiting int he water. As such, if your skiing, I wouldn't recommmend it. If it is merely a safety device to keep in the boat for emergencies, then it would be fine.
