Hey …i need a new creek vest but they all seem to be play vests with belts….. My older stolquist was a little larger but 23 lbs flotaion…….16 lbs is not enough in my opinion for aerated water. Are there any that have more flotation than a play vest?
i’ve got one and it’s pretty good. i like that the vest goes all the way up your back to the base of your neck. the Astral vest by comparison leaves you pretty exposed to a hard shot to the back between the shoulder blades.
The cut is fairly low profile allowing for a greater range of motion like a play vest and i suppose less floatation. all I can say is its worked for me so far this season, although i haven’t had a swim while wearing it yet…. knock on wood
