I previously owned a less expensive life jacket bought from a chain locally. I was never a fan but out of convenience, I picked it up. This Chinook fits well, has wide teeth zippers, plenty of pockets and is very adjustable. 250 lbs and being an XXL, sometimes it hard to get a good fit. This life jacket checks all the boxes. Would recommend.

Still hoping it works

My Vanhunks Elite Pro Angler is so good at staying upright that i haven't had a chance to try out the life jacket, and hope i never have to. But I bought an NRS Chinook because I wanted something with a good reputation in case that day ever comes. It is surprisingly comfortable for a life jacket. I really don't realize I have it on half the time. It has plenty of pockets to keep things nearby if you want. I would buy the same one again.

Amazing PFD with storage and protection

I picked this up with my new kayak and have worn it on a few outings now. The first one I was not used to wearing a PFD and thought it was weird and I was too old for this, but my safety mindset told me I needed to and kept going. After I knew it was there because it had POCKETS to store stuff which was amazing. I kept my full size phone in the left pocket for pictures with fish of course and I had like 5-6 other pouches of jigs in the right pocket with a can of copenhagen, and it had room for more. The rod holder it kind of useless honestly, but I feel safe wearing this while I have that extra storage. It is also very comfortable while sitting in the seat of my kayak going around. They thought of it all when they were making it. One of the best Kayak fishing PFD's I've seen!
