I don't know what vest to get. I have been looking at the Oneill outlaw women's competition vest. I know I want something non cg approved and a competition vest. Anybody know any good ones?

the outlaw is really comfy, I also like the vapor comp vest, but it tends to ride up when you crash.

I used to have an outlaw and loved it. It actually blew away on a windy day at the river. Haven't replaced it yet, but I am thinking of the Oneill Law, because it is USCG approved.

If you want a vest that is coast guard approved offers great support and very comfortable check out the Siren by Oneil, I picked my up for about $150 and I'd use nothing else ... why on earth are you gals riding NONCGA jackets? <BR> <BR>(Message edited by jetgofish on March 25, 2005)

Love the outlaw. Been using it for years. Very comfy.

Teri - you asked why NONCGA...because of room and flexibility in a drysuit. Frankly there is so much air in the drysuit, I float without any vest on. <BR> <BR>I would not wear a NONCGA without a drysuit though. They may not float you when you are completely dead weight in the water and that is what you need in case of an emergency. <BR> <BR>Does that make sense? People fight me on this all the time. I am just giving my personal example, it is not for everyone and I am not saying that everyone should ride NONCGA.

The outlaw is awesome, however Jet Pilot has a ncga that is a side entry, really light. Good vest. I have a long torso so it doenst work out to hot for me, but depending on your shape, it might for you. A lot of top girls are riding with them now
