I'm looking for a good uscga vest. I have been looking at the Liquid Force Manifesto and the Jet Pilot Core. I was wondering if ya'll had any input on which is better or a vest that is better than either one. I'm on a budget and would like to spend less than $110. Any input is appreciated.

The Jetpilot OG (uscga version) is legit

I think I'm going to go with the Liquid Force Manifesto, but I'm trying to buy online and i need a medium and I can't find it anywhere. I was wondering if ya'll knew anywhere that might have them. Also I was wondering how it fits.

They show a medium here for $99. You might could find a better deal but here's one to consider.

I was wondering how the Manifesto fit compared to your chest size? I measured my chest and got somewhere between 35.5 and 36in, and i was wondering if i should get the medium(36-40) or if they ran small and i should get the large(40-44). I'm a little cautious b/c i am buying online and cannot try it on. I have a stearns neoprene v-flex now that is an adult medium(36-38) that is too small when it gets wet.

Helium swat has gotten good reviews in the past and helium has had some clearance deals recently. i got the swat paisley. it seems pretty nice, but i would never pay full price for one. they (swat series vests) are about an inch longer than most vests. if you are not tall i would not recommend it. no segmented foam.

careful with sizing. the sterns site is horrible with that info. you will have to do a search on ww or the www in general to get that info straight

Justin, no I have never dealt with boardco. I'm actually just getting into the sport and ordered my only vest from stearnsflotation, but boardco seems to be a legit site. I've heard of people ordering from there, they offer free 3 day shipping, and have a 30 day return policy (new condition and you pay return shipping, but still it can be returned if you don't like it.) I wouldn't be too hesitant ordering from them. They seem legit to me. Also, I don't know if you saw but they had the black model as well. I would recommend the CGA vest but here's all the manifesto vests, both CGA and non-CGA in black and red.
