To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Bought this for my drift boat before I went down the Green River and couldn't be happier. The fit is good and did not interfere with rowing. Plenty of pockets and storage to hold fishing gear such as forcepse or pliers and nippers. Material feels good and tough, very happy with the quality.
Finally got to use it yesterday. It fits fine. I didn't get to use it for fishing yet, but I did wear it for a couple of hours of kayaking. I had easy arm and torso movement for paddling. It did tend to ride up a little higher than I like. I hope the many adjustments available with all those straps will help hold it down better. The handy shelf pockets were easy to open in the kayak and I look forward to making use of them soon for fishing. I* am pleased with my purchase.
I wore this life jacket for the first time on a ten mile paddle and I hardly noticed I was even wearing it...that is how comfortable this PFD is! It never road up on me and the two front pockets worked well for holding extra fishing gear. This PFD is absolutely the best PFD I have even worn!
