Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is an awesome rescue vest. Purchased for use in a swift water rescue course. Good floatation, great all-day comfortable fit, nicely adjustable.
A few things I would change: the front mesh pocket (while great for beverage holding) is setup as a sort or scoop and is more or less useless without being able to be zipped or closed or secured. Next: location of the knife clip is awful. Lost my co-pilot knife on the first strainer drill (you pull yourself up and over a log in the river), also, imagine trying to pull yourself back into a raft with a knife there to catch (same story with that mesh pocket). The knife is now zip-tied to a shoulder strap. The zippered pocket is awesome and big enough to keep prusiks and pullies.
