    Love the BioLite Vests

    The jacket dries quickly in the sun. It doesn't ride up when you wear it in the water. It provides enough range of motion to be able to waterski.

          boating, skiing, cliff jumping, swimming

          My husband really likes it and a friend of ours wore it, too, and loved it. My husband normally wears an XL so after reading reviews I ordered the 2XL and it's a hair big, but not bad.

                  • Q:

                    I am interested in this life jacket. I need it for jet-skiing. I have a Polaris X-Lg and it's too tight. I am 5'8", have a 46" chest and a 38" waist. The waist is the problem, obviously. I need it in 2 weeks. What size would you recommend, since reviews state they run way small?

                      If you have a 46 inch chest, I have to recommend and XL.
