    If you feel like expanding your list to four - super happy with my Stokes Evo 2

    Evo 2 was my choice, no looking back.

    Love my stokes as well, definitely worth taking a look at.
    Get high, get fast, and do some good work

    The D3 Impact Vest is made by Camaro. Great vest and reversible.

    Stokes has impressed me. I was skeptical i'd like mine when I bought it, It seemed a little bulkier and than my previous vests. Having worn it all season i can honestly say i'm really enjoying it. Fits well, is comfortable, seems durable, has not stretched out at all, does not inhibit movement in any way. It has significantly more flotation than my old slasher vest, which is a nice feature on public water. It does what its suppose to do and it does it well.

    I bought an impact vest from Picture, never heard of them before but it's really comfy, doesn't bind or restrict movement, it's fairly floaty and made from recycled materials (tyres and water bottles I think)

    I love Eagle brand but broke my ribs last year due to lack of padding on the sides. I now wear a rib protector shirt underneath when I wear this vest. You can buy them online. Not very expensive.

    You guys got me all excited to order a Stokes, as I need a new vest as well. Unfortunately, they only seem to be available in size M or smaller right now, and I need a large. :'(

    They have been out of stock on the larger sizes for a long time now. I would imagine they are dealing with the usual supply chain issues.

    Thanks for the comments. I’m a little surprised that there’s not any experience with the Eagle Ultralite - looks like their top of the line.

    I’m typically very loyal to a company that puts out good products and is loyal to me with good customer service. My ski partner blew out the side of a brand new Eagle vest and they said (paraphrasing) not our problem and sent it back to him, not even offering him repair with cost. I had a new Eagle Platinum and my old Eagle at the time, so haven’t had to replace yet. So, with his experience, and the annoyance of their stitching coming undone (which, to me, is really more of a cosmetic issue) I will be looking elsewhere. In fairness though, and full disclosure, I have LOVED, my Eagles and they have lasted years, even with the stitching issues noted above.
    I don’t have any experience with any of the others but the Aqua Flyers I’ve seen look like my next vest

    Anyone tried the O’Neill Outlaw new for 2022?

    My Eagle vest stitching came out also. Didnt even try dealing with them about it

    I would love to get a stokes, but I need a large as well. Hoping they can get some product back in stock soon. I have loved the 3/4 wetsuit I got from them!

    I’ve been in the O’Neill Assault CGA vests for 30 years. Anyone have experience with the latest version of the Assault with the nytrolyte foam?
