Well designed & constructed, but biggest size still a bit tight on my 52" barrel chest. One of the few rescue PFDs big enough to fit a Sasquatch like me. The thick front pad takes some getting used to at first, but on the river you forget about it, and the extra flotation would be well worth it in a rescue situation. Good arm mobility. Front pocket is handy. Comes with a clip-on whistle on lanyard, nice touch but not near as loud as fox 40! Rescue belt stays put until you want it to leave, easy to re-attach.
