    Lifejackets for TALL people

    Please chime in here or on my thread here-->http://www.pwctoday.com/showthread.php?t=440807 if you would want a TALL version lifejacket. Maybe if enough of us say we're in, somebody will listen and start making them.

    I'm talking taller than average. Those of us that are 6'1 and up. I'm 6'7" and my son is 6'3".

    Everything advertised as "big-n-tall" is actually for the huge-and-fat. I'm talking about actual tall average to slender folks that only need a Large or XL size with a few extra inches in length. I always feel like I'm sporting a half-shirt.

    Im 6'2" and I haven't had too much problem finding something that fits ok. But I only weigh 215. Im not huge. My dilemma is finding a 100 MPH rated vest that is also USCG approved. There are very few choices.

    I'm 6'2.5 222lbs and use a jet pilot apex gel side entry. Best jacket I've ever put on and fits beautifully. I think I paid $90. Same one in my profile pic

    yup. FYI anyone wanting quality just get Jet Pilot. I have their ride shorts(pictured) and it's literally the best suit I've ever put on. It also has a removable wet suit portion that zips in for winter time riding.
