This is the Wing Buoyancy Aid by Spinlock. It has 50 newtons of flotation. It's not Coast Guard approved, but it's a very sleek design and that's why buoyancy aids are so attractive because they're comfortable to be in and there's not much to snag on in terms of rigging on your boat.
In terms of features, I have double pocket here with Velcro entry, so I've got this inside one with little lanyard clip and then in the same space, I have another pocket right here.
The entry is a zipper on the side and I can open that up. That keeps the car from sliding down and it's pretty easy to get in and out of.
My adjustments are on both sides. This four way stretch material, all I have to do is cinch that down and then entry is open and right off the head.
On the inside, you'll see that it has this kind of sticky print and what that's about is once you have this on, you pull it down, and it's pressed up against whatever you're wearing. It basically wants to stay in place. It kind of sticks the vest there and keeps it from riding up.
