    I use the vest for kyacking and Hobie Cat sailing where you are constantly getting wet. The vest being vinyl coated dries very quickly. The vests are very soft and when you get wet when it's a little windy and cool can keep you warm. Same goes for when you land in the some cool water. They adjust easily and they don't ride up on your body. They are also the most comfortable vests I've worn too.

      I use this vest for my disabled child in the back yard pool. It fits great, nice and tight and makes her feel secure. It was recommended by the school board for swimming pool use for disabled children in our community.

        I've been buying this type of vest for over twenty years, I won't buy any other vest. Doesn't get water logged, not wet when used a second time. Just a perfect vest. We own 8, from 2x to Small, the entire family wears this vest.

          Comments about Overton's Vinyl Adult Flotation Vest:

          My sons love these vests. They hated wearing wet cloth vests for the ride home at the end of the day. These ones can be quickly wiped dry with the exception of the external straps. Kids can put on their clothes and vest for the chilly ride back to the marina at the end of the day without getting wet from the vest.

            Our children waterski, tube, wake surf in this life jacket! They have the neoprene ones as well but prefer this because it isn't wet when they put it back on!

              Comments about Overton's Vinyl Adult Flotation Vest:

              The "supersoft" is the best floatation device for boaters. My kids have used them for over 10 years. They don't get heavy wet upon a second use, so there's no fighting about putting a heavy, wet jacket on. Lightweight feel to them

                  If you get the correct size in the chest then the jacket should be able to float you without a problem.
