    As a Swiftwater rescue vest, I’m giving this 5 stars as its very robustly made, full of great river features and fits a wide range of size while not seeming too large in any one place. I like that its volume rides fairly low offering less places to catch on lines or kayak decks. As a river vest, its pockets are big enough and the cowtail belt tether system has a well-thought-out velcro tow ring centering device. It checks all the boxes for its intended use. As a sea kayak guide, it’s still missing some features that I’d use if they were there. I could say pretty much the same of most performance sea kayak vest designs out there though. Oh…and the new Green color is really awesome…hi vis and yet not obnoxious. Full disclosure: I was given this vest to test, but was considering buying one anyway.
