Product Description
 
This incredibly well-thought out and engineered Snorkeling Vest from IST will give the novice or experienced snorkeler the flotation they need when cruising the reefs and sands. For over 35 years, IST has been renown for its products of built-in durability, and this snorkel vest is worthy of that reputation.

Manufactured with the same technology as their famous SCUBA diving buoyancy compensator jacket, the new patented snorkeling vest from IST has a tough 420 D nylon exterior, which is coated with TPU on the inside for fail safe operation. Inflation is made easy with a low resistant oral inflation valve which also doubles as a secondary exhaust valve. The primary exhaust is located on the right chest for rapid deflation when needed. Rolled collar with felt lining increases wearer comfort. Special pattern and fastening system eliminates the need for crotch strap and can be worn more comfortably and safely around the body than a traditional design. Comes complete with a pocket and a dry pouch to store small personal items.

Question Hi-Is this a 'professional' quality vest? My husband used to dive and is picky...also is it appropriate for seniors/out of shape swimmers for snorkeling?

Size help is also needed: I am 5'7'' at 170 and he is 5'10'' at 205. Thanks!

Answer This product is made by professional diving brand, IST. They have reputation on making affordable products with good quality. And of course this is appropriate for seniors. According to the size, you can measure the waist and see the size chart provide in the product page. Please kindly let me know if there is anything I can help.




Question does the vest, or another snorkel vest product of yours, have a CO2 inflation option in addition to the oral inflation?
Answer This vest, as well as all our others are all inflatable via blowing up orally with oxygen.




Question I am going to Belize in April and we plan on doing a fair amount of snorkeling. I am not a very strong swimmer but also am not afraid of the water, just never got used to swimming. Would this type of product be recommended for that type of person, activity and experience level or is there something else that is more appropriate?
Answer Actually, you chose a very high-quality snorkeling vest which should be very appropriate for the experience level, activity and destination you describe.




Question my wife is 5'6" and weighs 120 lbs - would an M be OK for her - she is worried about it being too big.
Answer The M should fit her.




Question I am considering purchasing the model LJ100 Snorkeling Vest but I have a few questions. First I am 5'6" tall and have about a 60" waist I weigh aprox. 280# and I am wondering if the Large size will fit me? Also what prevents the vest from coming up around your head when your in the water and not in the swimming position. Thank you for your prompt response to my question.
Best Regards
Peter G. Regan

Answer The large size should fit you; the pattern and fastening system eliminates the need for crotch strap and is more comfortable without one.




Question i am 5 5 170 pounds
Husband is 5 11 250 pounds


What size would we each need?

Answer We would recommend a size M for you and a L for your husband.




Question Hi, Which size snorkeling vest would be best for me? I am 6' 2" tall with a 34" waist and weigh 180 pounds.

Thanks.

Answer Dear Mike,
Given your height, I would recommend a L on this vest, since the waist is adjustable.

Question I am 5'4" 160 lbs 34" waist; my wife is 5'1" 150 lbs. 38" waist. We're used to the cheap vests handed out on snorkel trips in the Caribbean, which I doubt have as much buoyancy as even the LF200 has. Given our sizes, would we be best with the LJ100 medium?

Thanks,
Tom

Answer Yes i would say a size M would do.




Question Hi Seavenger guys,...

I just received my adult medium size snorkeling vest. I tried it. My waist is 31 inches - weight 140 pounds and 5 foot 7 inches tall. I am not abled to snug it at the waist. I am wondering what would happen in the water with a so loose vest on my chest. It is large at the chest under the shoulder. Will I have it over my neck? Is a medium size really fitting a 31 inches waist?

Answer It shouldn't matter too much if the current won't be too bad. I'm not sure exactly how loose it is on you, but you can also exchange it for a kid's size, which is the next size down. You can check it out here: http://seavenger.com/snorkeling-vest-youth-p-521.html




Question I could not see if there is a strap for crotch retaining the vest going up??
Answer No there isn't. Please let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks!




Question Hi - I have three questions. First, I am 1.84cm High with thin Waistline 84cm -
which of the two options in size will fit me best M or L?
Is it possible to write on the actual invoice amount of 50US$?
In one of the websites I have seen that if one buys in more than 100US$ - He is entitled to get booties is it still applicable?

Best Regards,
Tomer

Answer L should be good.

Question Looking to purchase wet suits from your company, but my husband and I have never had one on, so we don't know what size we would need. Closest dive location would be 75 miles one way. I am very interested in the reversible long suits you have. I am also interested in your front zipper snorkeling vest-adult. Are they supposed to fit snug. I own a "cruiser" vest, it fits VERY snug, not sure if my husband would like one to fit that tightly, but he likes the looks of your front zipper vest.
Answer You can email us the measurements (at least Weight & Height) and we can help you with the wetsuit size or you can just follow the size chart under the product page.



The vest fit snug with adjustable waist. We never have customer complaint on this vest.

Size M: 30 ~ 52
Size L: 34 ~ 62

This is a great snorkel vest, being a nervous swimmer it has given me the confidence to go snorkeling and I would really recommend it. When either fully or partially inflated it enables you to enjoy the corals and fish knowing that you are properly supported and it also allows you to float over the same spot with ease, unlike the other snorkelers without one! When fully inflated it keeps your head nicely out of the water and gives a very safe feeling as it is wrapped around you, you bob over each wave safely. This is a very good product and certainly came into its own when another member of the group got cramp and became uneasy, the jacket certainly kept me safe and enabled me to help them as well. I would not be without it!

Nice vest..comfortable as it wraps around you. Back is a nice blue neoprene and neoprene piping around the neck area also. Easy to blow up and deflate. Adjustable belt for a comfortable fit.

I understimated sizing so did not keep this vest.. The dump valve was a HUGE FACTOR in my choosing of this vest. This vest should provide extra confidence to a neophyte snorkeler or to someone who wants a ( 1.) reserve of buoyancy when in rough water ( 2.) Dives alone or in cold water where the ability for self rescue is critical.
