Reviewer: Mary Whitten  -  View all my reviews
Works great. I am a great swimmer, however threading water and swimming around to look at fish etc. consumes energy when snorkeling. Just a little air in this vest makes all of the difference. More relaxing and enjoyable when snorkeling for sure. If you want to stay on the surface mostly this is the gear. If you want to dive down then you would need to let the air out.

LOOKED FOR A GOOD PRICE FOUND IT ON SCUBA.COM, GREAT PRICE AND QUALITY HADDED THAT EXTRA FEELING OF SECURITY ON THOSE LONG SWIMS OFF SHORE TO SNORKEL. AND ALSO THE HIGH VISIBILITY IS A GREAT SAFETY FEATURE AS WELL.

Rating: Highly Recommend
Reviewer: Jill
I can swim well enough, but I definitely prefer snorkeling with this vest. Its maybe a little lazy, but so much more enjoyable to be able to just float and relax while watching the fish. It easy to inflate and deflate for packing. Highly recommend.

Reviewer: Mary N.
This vest works very well to keep me afloat and is sufficiently comfortable. The crotch strap is indispensable, and the one on this item is extremely secure so that if it gets yanked on while swimming you dont have to worry about it breaking. I tried a wrap-around vest that did not work well at all because it did not have a secure crotch strap like this item. The front of this vest rides up a little bit while swimming but its not a big problem. I would recommend this product if you are going snorkeling and need a little more security in deep water.

Rating: Good vest but some adjustment problems
Reviewer: Wendy O.  -  View all my reviews
im a novice snorkeler so it may be my lack of experience that caused adjustment problems with this vest. it performed well and did the jobim not a strong swimmer and need the added buoyancy to feel safe in the water and it provided it well. however, i had trouble keeping the vest from shifting side to side when it was inflated. ive only used it once so i plan on fussing with the straps next time. it may need to be tighter than i had it. it seems to be a high-quality vesti hope i can get it to stay put a little better next time.

Reviewer: Larry O.
This vest is a good basic snorkel vest. I bought two to have around for when friends and family visit. The vest is cut shorter than most vests Ive seen, but my daughter and son-in-law used them and felt very comfortable using them. The crotch strap is very long like other reviewers mentioned, but didnt seem to cause a problem. I will investigate a way to shorten it or tuck it out of the way.

Great price,vest is highly visible in the water for safety.the vest inflates very easy with just a few breaths,the vest also deflates with just a downward push of the valve located on your left shoulder if you need to dive.All in all this snorkeling vest is a great value with all the safety features needed for a great snorkeling adventure.

Reviewer: James Lowe
Tested in swimming pool w/all snorkel gear and vest was easy to don, crotch strap kept vest close to body, inflating tube very easy to use with spring valve cap helping to keep air in and also while deflating. Excellent quality materials used in product. Deflated vest easily rolled up for packing. Would recommend vest over others reviewed on other websites. Capn Jim

I got this vest for a family member and was very pleased with it. On our recent trip to Fiji, he was able to snorkel with us and feel comfortable even though he is not the strongest swimmer. It gave him the confidence to experience the big blue with us.

Prior to a trip to the Bahamas, I bought 2 vests - 1 for my wife and 1 for myself. We already have our own snorkel gear. I am a strong swimmer and still like dive so I did not use my vest. However, my wife kept hers on whenever we were snorkeling. She loved it! With the added confidence we were able to stay in the water longer. I will hold onto the second vest

Rating: Not perfect, but a good vest for the money
Reviewer: Jerome P.
a good basic snorkeling vest. provides plenty of buoyancy without bulkiness, enough to support a diver wearing a wetsuit and weight belt, and the crotch strap prevents the unit from riding up on your neck. the bright color certainly makes the diver more visible. my one complaint is that i found the inflation hose to be too long and inflexible to easily place in my mouth for inflating. cutting the hose to a shorter length and re-ing the inflation valve on the end of it fixed this problem however.

I recently ordered this vest (along with the Junior model for my daughter) for our Royal Caribbean cruise in March 2010. I used this vest for our three snorkeling excursions in Cozumel, Grand Caymens, and in Haiti. Its your basic snorkeling vest - what more can I say - its high quality, and works great. Scuba.com shipped it to me in the time frame as promised. Thanks!
