    where to try on alot of life vests???

    i am sick of buying vests off ebay that dont fit good!!!!
    anyone know somewhere that i could go to try on all the different styles and sizes to find the best fit????
    i will plan my next vacation around such a place!!!
    boat shows?? miami is the biggest one i think.
    go to some big internet retailer like overtons? do they have a storefront??
    i live in PA and ride in NJ, no place around here i know of has any selection.

    that would be nice!!!
    i just chopped up the brand new jacket i bought, (just a cheapo anyways, but looks nice)
    custom tailoring it to fit me better!!!!!!
    takin 3 inches off each side below the arms, cuz it was WAY to much material under there, gonna use it to add a few inches of length over each shoulder, so the vest rides lower on my chest.
    while i was choppin , i found 4 layers of foam in the chest area, removed 1 layer and custom cut the foam pads so they are much more comfortable under the arms and around my neck.
    also found 3 layers of foam in the back, removed 1 layer and cut it 1/3 shorter.
    this should now fit me perfect and be comfortable!!
    and it still says Coast Guard Approved

    ya i know i will probably not float properly anymore, but i am just rec riding, if i fall off i am never more than a few hundred yards from nearest marsh or beach.
    if i am conscious but injured there will be people there to come help and enough floatation to keep me above water.
    if i am unconscious then i probably was speared by another rider or boat and if not dead already, someone will have to come rescue me anyways.
    i got other vests in reserve in case i decide to go out riding in severe conditions or crazy stunts.

    Lextoy,

    What Part of PA are you in? I Imagine near philly if you are riding in NJ. Check out Cabelas in Hamburg off of 78 or go to Bass Pro Shops in Harrisburg.
