My 4 year old oneal outlaw vest is getting black goo all over my seats.What vest gives you the best range of motion, light weight, comfort for surfing? really like the feeling of no vest, but that is another topic!
I have a Jetpilot Falcon (side entry, comp jacket). It floats very well for a non-uscga vest. The only thing that I don't like is that the snap comes undone fairly easy on crashes. I picked it up off a deal site for like $29 or cheaper.
