I'm so glad I ordered three kinds of Kokatat PFD's to try on in person:
1. Bahia Tour Personal Flotation Device
2. OutFit Tour Personal Flotation Device
3. MsFit Tour Personal Flotation Device - Women's
This Women's PFD was unnecessarily bulky. I suppose this has to do with body shape as well. I don't have a full chest on top, so if these were designed with extra room on top, they would have served me no purpose.
The sides of this PFD was not padded, but for some reason, it still felt bulky to move around in. I have not tested this out on water, since I ended up returning this product.
I kept the OutFit at the end, but I would still recommend getting the various PFD's, including this one. Try them to decide which one you feel most comfortable in.
For reference, I am 5'2, 118 lb, and I ordered a size Small.
Great Women's PFD

I tried on a lot of PFDs before deciding on the MsFit. It was the most comfortable by far. Well made, with generous pockets and a knife lash tab in the perfect location. Of all the PFDs I've used over the years, this one is my favorite.
Should rename it Misfit

Who designed this? I compared it to the men's version to see where the women's specific cut is... It's bizarre. The men's has padding the same thickness all around. Instead of thinner padding across the top front (you know, where our boobs are) the MsFit has thinner padding at the sides from top to bottom. In the pictures you can see the front is made of two panels that zip in the center, then there's a side seam where the front panel meets the side panel that has the zippered pockets (the reflective part ends in that seam). The padding cutouts are not in front, they're in under that front-side section. Why?? If you can sling your boobs to the sides and out the arm holes, you'll love this PFD... otherwise, return it like I am. (another thought is that if you are thicker around the middle, whether female or male, this might be an option for you)
I am 36D, with largest chest measurement of 38.5". I tried both the S and M. I found the S too small and the M too big.
Quality-wise it seems well-made. The pockets and reflectors are good. The flap over the knife lash and chest buckle under the zipper are nice touches. Shoulder "padding" is articulated stiff pieces. Looks more protective than the usual soft stuff.
