Familiarity: I've used it several times

Got this on sale, SO WATERPROOF, WINDPROOF and breathable with ability for warmer or colder conditions. Bought a few sizes too big because it was running out of stock, and I still love the way it looks and fits. Has the perfect amount of pockets, and luckily haven't had to use the RECCO- but nice feature to have. Only thing is that I catch a wind draft through the zipper where the hood attaches sometimes, but a neck warmer blocks the draft just fine.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

5 star product so far. I have only used it at the gym so far- but the size chart did not work for me at all. All my measurements said I would be a medium, so I ordered it and it was way too big. The small fits well, but I still have to crank down most of the straps, so I would keep that in mind when ordering.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Thought I lost mine, bought this as a replacement. Does the job, and it is wonderful to be able to lock it. I have left it unlocked before, and my backpack will find its way on top of it, put pressure on the valve and it leaks. So it is great to have the option to lock it.... if you can remember to!

pretty decent
4 5

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!
