This personal flotation device is designed for those with chest size ranging between 30 and 36 inches – the sweet spot for the majority of people. 

With USCG approval and 200-Denier Nylon fabric, this vest is a real jackpot.

Costing less than $100, this life jacket couldn’t be any more feature-rich. It has two self-draining zippered pockets for storage in the front, a breathable mesh back and side panels for ventilation, and reflective piping for safety measures. 

The high back is responsible for minimizing the friction often encountered between the jacket and the kayak seat. This means that even after several hours of kayaking and canoeing, your back will feel just fine. 

Choose between the three sizes available for purchase, and purchase the one that seems to have the right fit. (It also helps to read a couple of customer reviews to get a better idea of the jacket’s fit).
