    Price Paid: 70
    Recommended: yes
    Cons: Gear-lashing options are limited
    Pros: Comfortable
    This was my first "real" PFD, the first one that didn't come from Walmart. It's worked well for me over a year's time. The only times I felt it was uncomfortable was when I added insulating layers (and waterproofing layers) underneath, in cold weather. I wear it full-time when I'm in the kayak. (Or "on", I suppose.)

    The only thing I've not been impressed with, is that I've tried to clip a dive knife to it, and I'm running low on locations for it. There's only one lashtab on the PFD, and it's behind the left shoulder. Yup, on the back. Not 100% sure what they had in mind for a tab on the back. The pockets are OK, but the combination of the buckles and velcro seems to make them a bit cumbersome. I keep a measuring tape in there, and occasionally a pair of scissors.

    I've upgraded to a Stohlquist Fisherman... looking forward to better gear placement.
