The vest looks really nice. It would have been great if it had a side entry zipper. I had tried but could not get in and out of it. I put it on twice and had to return it. I felt like it was going to rip.

I really like the style but for some one my build it was not the right fit.

I am 5'8 165lbs I went with the medium, but I am pretty sure the large would have been to small as well. Just to give you an idea how small it was.

I returned it and went with the Watson Comp vest....and it fits perfect, I love it.

Comments about Liquid Force Cardigan Comp Wakeboard Vest 2011:

The impact does its job. I've even used it on the halfpipe snowboarding, under the jacket after I hurt my ribs on a hard fall. Restricts some movement but its not terrible. I didn't like that the neck hole is a bit small and you feel it pushing into the front of the neck. I use it at the cable park and behind the boat. As far as fit, its true to the size they mention. Unlike the Oneill which I had to go one size smaller.

        This vest is very compfortable, but is a bit smaller than I thought. It's really hard to get off, but while Wakeboarding it's the best vest to wear. The no zippers part is really nice, but I would rather have one for ease of use.

          Should have gone with the large, a bit of a fight to get off an on and a little tight. Freedom of movement as in the title is great though, especially for passing the rope around your body.

            I have used this vest while wake-surfing. I like the vest because its not as bulky as a life preserver ( and looks a lot better too). Although its nicer looking and less bulky, the temperature can get fairly hot if not in the water. The vest is also a little hard to pull off.

            I use this vest for competitive waterskiing. It is very comparable to the Oneil Guru....but a lot less money, ; especially when on sale.

            Just like the Oneil....it does stretch after some use. I prefer a vest with more compression, like the Eagle....they just don't hold up as well.

            Good overall value....
