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:

    The kids love this vest. It looks to be a little smaller than the other brand youth vest I got but this one might be the correct one. Fits a 6 year old fine. Differences between brands gives a better variety to fit the kids. It all works out. Looks to be well made and sturdy. I havent gotten to try it out since it is currently winter and the water is 30 degrees

        Comments about Overton's Overtons Youth Nylon Vest:

        Purchased this for my kids (5 & 6) who are both just over 50lbs. We were going to a friends pool that we knew had very deep water. My kids don't know how to swim yet but they love the pool so I bought this for my own piece of mind. The vests were excellent. The only issue I had was the rides up a little in the water. My daughter chaffed under her arm. But truly she was so confident with the vest on she kept jumping into the deeper end, which I believes is what caused the chaffing. All in all a great product. I ordered it on line and had it delivered to the store. The process was quick and painless (4 days from online purchase to in store delivery and pick up).

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