Here's what other sites are saying:
One size rarely fits all. That's why our Discovery PFD is designed with three graduated sizes, with exacting proportions that deliver the most comfort and less bulk - at a great price. Flotation: super soft Gaia foam in front, durable polyethylene foam in back. Cover: rugged 420-denier nylon. Handwash, line dry. Type III PFD, approved by the US Coast Guard. High-waist life jacket design allows you to kayak in comfort. Body foam structure varies by PFD size, creating a noticeably more precise fit. Generous arm and neck opens for free movement. Reflective details on front and back help you be seen in low light. Two zippered pockets keep essentials at hand. Easy to adjust as you add or remove layers. Patch on back shoulder to attach strobe or knife. Imported.
