Review by Josiah
When Your Life Depends on It.
I have owned mine for over 5 years, and its one of the only pieces of kayak gear I have owned for that long that is still around. I am pretty much as hard on gear as anyone I have ever met.
Zippers durability is everything with outdoor gear and these are the most durable I have seen hands down. Even when the pockets are full of heavy lead weights and zippers packed with sand these pockets have never failed me.
A life jacket without a radio pocket is like a man without a belt. When I flipped my Hobie AI while trolling for salmon, miles off the NorCal coast in rough seas with no one around, my radio was secured in the pocket the whole time. Even as I went under the boat it was with me.
This vest kept me floating like a cork as I swam to retrieve my paddle. Luckily I was able to right the boat and self rescue, even went on to catch fish. But I shudder when I think about what having no life vest and being separated from my radio could have meant that day.
Moral of the story, you will be prepared for the worst and ready for the best with this great life vest! Definitely a great investment, likely the last life vest you will ever need.
