The new Hyperlite Indy TALL NEOPRENE life vest is the ONLY TALL NEOPRENE life vest on the market. It has extra 3″ length to help cover the torso and tummy. Compared to regular length life jackets, the extra 3 inches length helps so it does NOT look like a bra on tall men.
This super soft comfortable Oversized Neoprene life vest is USCGA Coast Guard Approved for your body weight. It has an outer and inner Neoprene layer with segmented foam panels, a front zipper, two 1.5 in adjustable belt buckles with EZ quick Release, and Hyperlite Logos. This is a Type III PFD (Personal Flotation Device). Intended use: Waterskiing, Wakeboarding, Fishing, Canoeing, Rafting, other sport for water safety in lake or ocean bay.
The size 5XL-TALL is the largest neoprene life vest in the world and will fit a 400 lb man. Because of the additional amount of neoprene and foam in the 5XL-TALL (5XLT), this life jacket achieved Coast Guard approval using the new system that applies universally to USA and CANADA. See picture of size stamp inside the vest. In addition, with the additional amount of neoprene, the 5XLT stretches more than the smaller sizes and has some contingency lengh in the straps so you will be able to buckle it up when stretched larger than what is indicated on the size charts for 5XL-TALL. WaterSkiWorld helped Hyperlite with the design the 5XLT with this extra strap length after trying it on men who weighed over 400 lbs.
Note on size: Measure your chest circumference under the arms and across the pecs. Also measure the belly. If your belly measurement is bigger than your chest measurement, the guide based on chest size may not be right. In that case, it is better to buy a size larger than what is indicated by your measured chest size. Water Ski World is not responsible for return shipping when a vest does not fit, (as stated in our policies which are read and agreed on via checkbox before placing an order.) People have different body shapes and we cannot always predict what size will fit you.
