Re: Kid overboad plan

Cute kid, Brian.

I bought the Mustang Lil Legends vest but it just did not fit my guy very well. It was really tight around the neck. He's 35 pounds so at the low end of the Child's size (30-50 pounds) I thought it would work. He's in a regular Stearns type buckle vest for now and I plan to lifejacket shop in spring to get him sized up with a good quality vest for the season (unfortunately we'll be on the hard in another month here). The current vest, despite being some knockoff brand, does actually work very well. He'll jump in and the vest pops him right up, face up. Has most of the flotation in the front like the Mustang (but not the handle).
