I've tried on the Comp version and really liked it, but I'd like to get the USCG jacket. Problem is that none of the local shops carry it so I can't try it on. They can order it but you then committed to purchase it. <BR> <BR>Can anyone tell me how much thicker and bulkier the USCG version is than the Comp Revenge? <BR> <BR>Also, please don't come on here and tell me about how all the other USCG vests are so great...I've tried nearly everyone of them on. I just want to get some input on the Revenge USCG. <BR> <BR>Thanks!

dude, glad you asked this.. I am looking at the same thing. Looks to be a good non bulky cga... Ill be interested to hear. One of my friends rode the noncga revenge from last year and said that it floated him really well for a comp vest..

Me too Jay, I can't find anywhere that has one!

I have had two of them. One in medium and one in small. I liked the fit but they were a bit longer than I preferred and I ended up going back to my Oneill law. They were long enough that the vest would bunch up when I bent over to grab. I guess they had to relocate the flotation somewhere. I guess a large or XL might be better since they have more room to hide the flotation...but I didnt like mine.

M-Dizzle, how does it compare in thickness to the Law? Also, is it more flexible than the Law?

I just picked up a revenge and a law. I like the way the revenge fits. I'm tall so I like the length and it does slide up after wrecks. It feels like a comp vest thickness wise. The only place I like the law a little better is that it's a little easier to bend over in. The hidden straps of the revenge make the stomach area a little stiffer

Chris, is that the comp or cga revenge?

cjh1669 02-08-2010 1:27 PM

CGA. My father in law picked up the Law. I like the feel and look of the revenge better, but the Law is easier to bend in.

I have the Revenge USCG, but I have never worn the comp version, so I cannot comment on the difference between the two. <BR> <BR>As far as the one that I have, it is indeed a long vest. However, if you have a bit of a belly like I do then that's a good thing <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>It fits great and I love the hidden zipper. The only negative I have about it is that it seems to fill up with water which makes it a fairly heavy vest. Whenever I get out of the water it takes a little while to get all the water drained out.

I think the law is thicker up top but thinner down around the belly. The law has a shorter length too. Overall the revenge has more bulk down around the waist... in comparison to the law. Overall I find that I have more mobility in the Law than the revenge. My body type is: 5'10", 170lbs, 32 inch waist.

at the shop i work at people seem to love the revenge. They like the length a lot (Surprisingly tons of people complain about normal vests being to short). And a lot of guys love the fact that it has added lumbar supprot.
