This is a very versatile Jkt. Plenty of storage, lessens the need to find space in the kayak,mine had a whistle attached, which was a nice touch. One drawback is that it can be a little bulky for a paddle jkt over top with spray skirt. Still love it as I don't do much in bad weather, or high current. Those days are behind me.
Great life jacket, very comfortable, lots of pockets which is a big plus. Not too bulky like other jackets can be. The mesh sides and back keep you cool during the summer, even on pretty hot days. I use this jacket all the time kayaking and fishing and I love it.
