Great product, extremely compact (more-so than the lesser time limited ones), well worth springing for a few extra dollars for the extended 10 year life units. Shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition. Of course I havent actually used these life vests (and hopefully never will), but am happy to have them on-board replacing my old ones which were expiring. Highly recommend!
Seems to be of good quality, but canâ€™t really evaluate it beyond that because I havenâ€™t had to use it ðŸ˜Š
