Had a hard time keeping the vapor on, came off almost every crash. Love the JP A-10.

i cant see myself fitting into one of those oneill vests. i had a throttle and it was nice just too bulky. but the new ones look so small. i got a jetpilot baller now. very comfy.

As far as handles, proline lg. Buddy got me to try it and i must say it is nice. As far as floating it does a lil bit (sorry, another thread reminded me of this). Just the actual part you hold floats. the rest of the handle goes under.

The fuzz checks us every once in a while. I like the jet pilot A-10. It looks killer and is really comfortable as well.
