I was hoping to replace my zip-up PFD with something that had open sides like this Ninja. I'm petite, 34D chest. This is made for a man or someone who is flat-chested. The straps rubbed against my neck, and I could see it causing irritation if worn for any period of time unless worn over a shirt like the model.

Comfortable Vest

Is great for freedom of movement of your arms, great for paddling. However the pocket is very small, so not gonna be able to carry much gear in it, maybe a phone, wallet, keys, small items like that.

Among the worst product I've ever tried

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
5' 6"

I don't usually leave reviews. But this one is truly one of the worst products I have ever tried on. Neither me nor my paddling friends could make it work, and we are different sizes. The vest is, in one word, flat. The foam on the front is so stiff and so thick, it doesn't bend around the body curve, leaving a huge gap between the vest and the body. I intended to use it for SUP or canoe, I can't possibly see how it can work without my arms hitting the sides while paddling. My bigger sized paddling friends don't have much luck either. This vest is worst than any rental vests I've put on. Don't waste your money. If I could leave negative stars, I would.

So comfortable for all the sports!

I love to do a lot of different activities (SUP, kayak, canoe etc) so I wanted one PFD that fit for them all. This PFD has such a large area of movement in the arms, it was perfect! Plus it comes in some great colors! Great fit, very durable & great price.. what's not to love?!

Love my Ninja!

I LOVE this life jacket. I typically complain that life jackets are too constricting, or just don?t fit right. You always feel like you?re wearing one. Not the Ninja. It?s so low profile that I forget I?m wearing it! Until I?m swimming with it, and then the foam stays so low on my body that it floats me really high out of the water. Which is great when I?m ping ponging down a whitewater rapid out of my boat! I really like how big the pocket is too. I can keep all my essentials in there, and there?s still room for a snack!

2020 Updates are awesome.

I have worn the Ninja from it's original, love it for its low profile design and huge range of motion. Updates for this year include a texture inside the PFD, which is holding it place better when I am swimming. The slots to hold the ends of the straps are great, so they don't blow in my face anymore. The new HUGE pocket even fits my I-Phone 10 in a case.
