    Life jacket for a very tall and large fellow

    I bought some cheap Overton's life jackets to toss on my SeaDoo jet boat to be legal, and I figure I probably will never use them anyways so I didn't really care about the fit. Now, i bought my first jetski (GP1200R) and I look like a fool wearing the Overton's one because it is wayyyy too short for me

    So.... Any suggestions on a vest for a 6'8 300 pound guy with a big frame and shoulders? I don't have a big belly or anything... I'm just large... so the length of the vest is the main problem for me

    Any tips or direction would be appreciated! Thanks guys

    Well overall I don't think you'll find a "long" life jacket. When you sit, you want a shorter jacket for comfort. I'm 6'3" and 250, have a 54 inch chest. I find the Jetpilot vests fit me the best. Just be cautious that you order by inches and not size. For some reason, jetpilot has life jackets that are 3x. a 3x in one model may be 50-52, but in another model a 3x might fit 54-56. I always order by the inch number, and have a good fit every time.

    Good luck,
    Pauly C.
