im getting ready to buy my girlfriend a new vest and possibly a wetsuit top. She likes the new liquid force and CWB stuff. just wondering what vests are comfortable for you ladies.

Im really stoked on the Oneill womens Gooru..it should be in storess in april...it is by far the most comfortable vest! I also really like the Oneill outlaw vest and they are adding a womens Vapor vest as well to their line which is sick! For wetsuit tops I really like the Oneill Gooru top (the glide skin is good for windy days) , the Hammer (the easiest to get into) and the Bahia (it is thin but still really warm!) Hope this helps!

I second the Oneill Outlaw, Ive had mine for 2 1/2 years and it is still intact! its super comfortable, it floats really well even though its a comp vest. This year I want to buy the new womens Vapor, I fell in love with the guys but couldnt find one that fit well, and now that they got a womens, Im sooo getting it. As for wetsuit top, I've got the Oneill Hammer, it works perfect if the water's too cold or if the weather is too cold. Also really comfortable, allows movement and the most important thing: it really keeps you warm!

Thanks. I was looking at the vests on wakeside. How do the sizings work?

I bought my girlfriend one of the HO vests last year with the "fitted" top. It basically has built in cups. She loves it. Some people say the arm holes are too big but she has had no problems. If your girlfriend is smaller than a C cup, then the above vests should work great. But if she is a C or larger, you should check this one out.

I have no idea how the sizing works... if it helps, I got the hammer in size 6, and im usually xsmall or small in most shirts, and my vest is a size 8. Umm... Im also on the smaller sides in chest size ;)

oneil womens outlaw is great <BR> <BR>not to long s it doesn't cut into your legs, light weight, not tight in the chest area

Here is easy sizing find out her bra size. An look on the vest to see what it fits in the cm range. I am a 34-36 bra so I wear a 34-36 range vest, or a Med - large. <BR>I have to go with the girls Law vest. I love the way it feels and keeps everything put when you ride. It feels like a t-shirt you dont even knows its on.
