i like it so far. seems durable, have yet to float in it. i bought it for ww canoeing and kayaking. it is pretty flattering considering that it is a life jacket. the "feminine" aspects of this still puzzle me however... there are just two nylon pieces that stick out farther - seems kind of silly. love the no zipper aspect. (zippers always seem to break on me). overall i am very satisfied, but had to give it 4/5 instead of 5/5 because of the pocket location and the emphasis they put on women's fit, which seems to not be a very important feature. sizing is true to size, but i was in between small and medium on the chart, went with a medium- and i REALLY have to crank down all the buckles. I am 34D with a smaller waist, and I have yet to experience any issues with fitting it, or getting in on by myself as some other reviews noted. I would really REALLY love this pfd if they had just added an exterior zipper pocket as well. I clipped my camelbak around the back where the arms and the body piece meet (that worked perfectly!) If I have any true complaints I will be back to note them!
