I used this in the spring for some late winter early spring trips and day trips. What I liked is the material is waterproof so it keeps the cockpit dry and the webbing on the front is great fro keeping a bottle or bailout right there. There is also a pocket for important equipment on the front of the spray deck which is convenient. What I don't like is that this does not have shoulder straps which I prefer. I feel strapless tend to scoot down over time and you have to play the pull up game. Other than that this is fully adjustable and within slated size ranges and offers great cockpit protection so you stay nice and dry on the inside of the compartment. I am 5'10" about 165 and go with the 38/20 which fits me perfect.
