    For starters, I've been water skiing and boating for over 40 years so I'm not a newbie to this stuff. I checked the sizing chart for myself, wife and son. My son is 4'11" and 90 lbs. Not chubby or barrel chested at all. More on the slender side. Got him the Teen vest 90 to 120 lbs. thinking he could grow into it. The top buckle is tight all the way extended. The other buckles are much longer, but that doesn't help if the top one is tight. I tried him in the adult L/XL and it fits (once we cinch it down). We also have a womens S/M 32" to 40" and that fits him but with very little room for growth. Again, it's the top strap that doesn't adjust much. I bought a L/XL for myself 5'11" 160 lbs. and it fits but I'm a lean guy. The problem with all of these is the top strap just doesn't extend as far as the other three. If not for the size issue, I would have given five stars.

    This life jacket was not the comfort I expected. The inner part seemed extra thick and stiff, which makes it uncomfortable to wear. [...] we have decided it would be more economical to keep it for a spare life jacket.

              Our grandchildren use this vest for water skiing, tubing, kayaking and boating. It is much less bulky than the older ones we had and much lighter. The grandchildren think this is a "real cool" life vest!!!
