    I own two of these for my 5 year old girls and they love them. They are soft and comfortable for wearing all day on the boat and they offer nice flotation. They dont ride up or irritate their skin like some of the nylon vests and they hold up and look new even after a year of use and winter storage. The only con would be that they need to offer more color options.

    My daughter is 4. Weighs 37 lbs and 21inches through chest. This jacket won't even meet over her belly. No way we could zip it up. I measured vest of jacket and it is only 20 inches. Not sure how a child of up to 25 inches could fit in it. I also ordered a youth size 50-90 lbs for 7 yr old daughter is 54 lbs and that vest fits perfectly.

        Comments about Overton's Overtons Child BioLite Vest:

        These are great life jackets! My daughter has kept this on for hours at a time because she hardly noticed it was there. We got a couple of years use out of it and now it'll be handed down to cousins because it's shown very little wear. Off to buy the bigger size because she's grown out of it!

          We bought this model a couple of years ago for our daughter. She is now four and it still is in perfect condition after using it many times boating and in the lake. We are very happy with it and will be able to pass it down to our second child.
