                            Great range of motion rating
                            Bought this for my 7 year old. He hasn't tried it out on/in the water yet but he has pretended paddling with his kayak paddle. This PFD has a great cut for providing free movement of arms. Only con is the buckle at the base of the zipper. Because of how the buckle is sewn on, you have to fiddle with it so that it doesn't dig in to the stomach when the vest is zipped. Once adjusted the buckle must have been ok because he left the vest on for a couple of hours just playing in the house.
