How do I properly fit a life vest?

You need the life jacket to be comfortable but not too loose. There needs to be a bit of room in the STORMY jacket and vest styles to accommodate the inflation chamber and that extra size is reflected in the chest advice on the size label. Try on the various styles till you find one that feels right. You need to adjust any belts or harness to fit snug but not tight. A harness is a personal piece of equipment and the straps must be perfectly fitted to your body so adjust it and familiarise yourself with every strap and buckle and how they work in your life jacket.
