I was going to order a new vest. Was wearing friends, but it really sucked. Started not to wear one, but decided that was not the smartest move. What's a good one? Also, what size should I get? I was going to order online. Price does not matter. I'm 6'1, 180lbs, normal build. Thanks for the help.

jet pilots are great but be sure to get a size smaller they run huge!

I went by the local board store and tried on the O'Neill Mental and by far the most comfortable "APPROVED" vest I have ever tried. It was very easy to move around in as well.

My roommate has the jetpilot A-10 and he loves it. It is lightweight, versatile, and pretty comfortable. He is probably about the same size as you and he has a large.

Best jacket I have ridden is the Dakine shock vest.You can find it under their kiteboarding gear.Its NOT USCG approved but you would never know.I weigh 210 and it floats me just like a regular USCG approved jacket!

If you don't mind riding a nonUSCG vest get the O'Neil Outlaw size XL. Should fit you like a glove. Super comfortable and flexible. If you talk to the O'Neill reps, they found a loophole in the USCG law which makes it legal to wear this vest based upon the amount of flotation contained. You need to make sure you have a USCG vest in the boat still though.

if you want a USCG approved vest and you like the Outlaw vest, check out The Law vest. its just like the Outlaw, but it has just enough padding to make it CGA friendly. i got one on friday and its pretty damn nice...

you can find it at
