Here's what other sites are saying:

WIth a women-specific fit and graduated sizing, the Stohlquist Cruiser PFD ups the comfort for a wide range of paddlers with its padded mesh shoulders and lower back waistband that's easy on the skin.


Wouldn't it be nice to comfortably paddle in a life vest that truly complements your physique' Rather than repackage its men's PFD with some pastel colors and call it a women's model, Stohlquist gave the Women's Cruiser Personal Flotation Device a smaller cut, a shortened torso, supportive inner cups, and the new Wrapture shaped torso to ensure ergonomic comfort for female paddlers. Half flotation and half airy mesh on the back provide cool, low-profile comfort in today's rec-tour boats, and the padded mesh shoulders and lower-back waistband are easy on the skin when worn with a swimsuit.
