Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Helly Hansen Rider Vest Buoyancy Aid (Apparel)
I bought this for windsurfing and find it very comfortable. I'm 55kg, tall and slim, and found it to fit very well over my wetsuit. It allows good freedom of movement and doesn't hinder me at all.
I also wore it when swimming in the sea, and although the actual swimming is more difficult with the life jacket on than without, I could take frequent breaks and just bob about for a while.
Note that this is only a buoyancy aid, not a life jacket, so it won't turn you over if you get knocked out. If you're into dingy sailing I'd recommend getting a life jacket instead.
