    Does anyone have the Slippery Switch Molded Vest?

    I'm thinking about getting this vest. Anyone have any opinions about this vest?

    i have a slippery molded vest..

    this one to be exact:



    I absolutely love it!

    A little tight this year since I've grown, but absolutely AWESOME!

    its cut real well on the top by the shoulders, so no rub or anything.. stretches nicely, looks awesome, coast guard approved...!!!

    This is the description out of my catalog:

    U.S. Coast Guard approved Type 3 PFD
    PVC inner foam and a soft, stretch knit fabric interior for comfort
    Fully molded outer shell for flexibility and performance
    Neoprene sides and shoulders for comfort and maxium mobility
    Front zipper and two 1.5" belts with quick-lock buckles for easy adjustment

    I agree. The only bad thing I can say about it, is the shoulder straps on top tend to start flapping in the wind right at 75MPH + . It gets real annoying at about 82-85MPH.

    This is the best life vest ever. I love the inner lining, my old vest used to irritate my nips. The straps to me are little too long. They tend to get all flappy, but not at top speeds though. It just kinda scrunches up when your in the riding position. Im not sure what year my vest is but I got it for $67.00, not bad. Heres a pic of the awesomeness!

    Hallpass, this is exact same one I was looking at and I'm really glad to hear you love it along with the others here. I really want this vest. I was THIS close from ordering it last week, but I'm worried that because it's not Canadian Coast Guard Approved, will I get in trouble for wearing this in CDN waters...????

    Does the 2009 switch vest have a d clip on it? I have the 08 and need another medium, but I have had no luck finding one. I have held off on the 09 vest since I do not see a d clip in any of the pics and descriptions.

    Thanks for any info.

    Where do you clip your lanyard? I only ask because every vest I have had was equipped with a d clip, so I am venturing into uncharted terrirtory if I go with the 09 Switch.
