    Neoprene vest for fat dudes??

    Gotta say Im a fatty and been looking for a decent life vest. I currently use a 2x neoprene sterns but just too short and snug. Ive seen the big and tall vests but would prefer neoprene if at all possible. Been eyeing a 3x Jobe vest but not sure how long they are. Anyone have one of these? http://www.ebay.com/itm/221262670043?var=520160016725&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA X:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 Im weighing in at 330 (yes thats lbs not kilos lol) and am 6ft 4....dumb thing is everyone thinks I weigh in like 280 lol.

    Ryan-

    I am 6'3" 350lb and live in Kearney. I bought a 4x vest last year at Buzz's marine in Kearney. Works great. Not sure what they have in inventory but if you're ever in Kearney stop in and check it out.

    i fall in this category as well and currently use a Ronix 2xl vest. its snug and a tad short for what id like but for now it works. It is USCG approved. I will be buying one of the new slippery vests in a 3xl size when they are released at the end of this month (per slippery). They are longer in the torso which i like and have the D-ring for all of us Doo riders.

    specifically the slippery surge neo which is a neoprene vest. - forgot to add that...

    That Jobe is uscg approved, looked into it. Don't know why you'd think otherwise. Now the armor style vests for racing and wake boarding aren't approved most times I've seen.

    I have this one.




    Now selling for $57.94 on Amazon in size 3XL--which is what I have. I'm 5'10" and ~300#. It fits, but I do have to tug it down sometimes due to my shape.

    I thought about trying those CWB vests. I stumbled on a vest just like I posted in the 1st place on Amazon this morning. They had 1 red one in 3x at like 34 bucks so figured hell yeah . The other colors were higher still and they had more of them. Ill post up once it gets here...show how much much sexxy belly hangs out
