I bought this for our 8 year old daughter and it has been an excellent purchase. Great vest at a reasonable price.

The top buckle does not have enough adjustability, so while the other buckles fit fine the top one only is too tight. I find this the case on the 3-buckle teen vest I also purchased, but at least that one is usable. I'll keep the child vest as a spare since it's not worth the cost of shipping it back, but it will not be used for daily use as intended...these both miss the mark.

    Comments about Overton's Overtons Youth Nylon Vest:

    Bought these for my grandsons to use while swimming at the lake. They are 8 and 6 and both weigh over 50 pounds. I was a little concerned since jackets at this weight category don't have the crotch strap. Turns out they fit so well there is no fear of them sliding out of them. Thought these were a great value and would definitely buy again.

      Comments about Overton's Overtons Youth Nylon Vest:

      My son doesn't know how to swim so when we are at my family's lake house, he wears the life vest for not only boating but also on the dock while fishing. It is so comfortable that he doesn't even realize he has it on.

                    Is the teen vest longer than the youth vest? I see they are the same across the chest.
