    I bought all neoprene vests. They are much more reliable than the old padded ones (if they even still make those) and more comfortable. The easiest thing is to just go to the store and try a few on. That's how I decided.

    the websites of the jackets you are interested in have the size info. I`m pretty sure it goes by chest size...
    I`m partial to slippery, Neo for the summer, and a type5 pullover for the colder days...

    Check this thread out, it's got a lot of great info regarding what to look for in a lifejacket in regards to both safety and comfort: http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...st-PFD-for-PWC

    Personally, I wear a JetPilot side entry. It was pretty reasonably priced, impact rated to 100mph, and comfortable for summer use.
