I was looking for a PFD for Kayaking and I did my homework before going to the store to look. I had a short list of three different vests I wanted to try. This was the third one I tried because the other two just didn't seem to work for me because both rode up. That was one of my main criteria for choosing the right vest for myself. What I like about this is the high quality materials and heavy duty zipper. It has six straps that can be adjusted to get a proper fit. When I put this vest on and adjusted the straps there was absolutely no ride up whatsoever. The two pockets in the front snap and they snapped solidly closed when I tried them. I will use this vest for lakes, rivers and whitewater. I am very impressed with this life jacket and how well it's made and the thought that went into the design. This vest was actually my number one choice before I went into the store.
