great jackets

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

bought these for the kids and they work fantastic. The size is a little large for my youngest who weighs about 60 lbs. This isn't really a problem as it has so many straps on the front and sides to tighten that it doesn't come over his head or out of place.

Fits a skinny 60-lb child

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

We bought this testing a few Youth PFD in-store and even using a PFD purchased in a pinch from a big box retailer, which ended up being too loose no matter what adjustments were made. This Stohlquist Escape Youth fit well after adjustments and there was not a single complaint about the PDF feeling uncomfortable. This PDF has been used for kayaking and swimming in chilly water of Lake Tahoe.

Safety first...

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this for my 45 lb, 6 year old son and was able to adjust the size to make it fit. Much more mobile in the arms and shoulders than traditional life jackets that have all the bulk up top.
