      The VHF pocket is approximately 2.5" W x 1.5" D x 5.5" H. The sides and bottom are made of an elastic material which will allow some stretch as well. It can can except a radio slight longer than 5.5" as the retaining strap attaches approximately 1.25" above pocket. Looks like a good fit for the Standard Horizon HX851.

    Thank you for answering my question about the 16.5 lb floatation buoyancy, but I need to know how it relates to keeping a 160 lb person floating in the water while trying to re-enter a kayak.

      Getting back in a kayak
      Good question: Depends what type of kayak and water conditions:
      Traditional plastic or fiberglass white water kayak - in white water, will be difficult regardless of life jacket, Remember, white water has lots of air in it and you float lower, hydraulics and eddies can hold you under. Higher flotation is better. If you get tossed out of the fiberglass or plastic kayak, stay upstream of it so you don't get crushed between it and rock or logs, and work your way toward shore. Stay away from logs, trees hanging into water that can pin you, Your kayak should have airbags & and or compartments to keep most water out, and make kayak more manageable.
      If you use an Inflatable Kayak from NRS or AIRE - your seat should have one strap that goes around kayak that you may use to flip the kayak upright - most good ones are self bailing so it will drain out, and you need to practice entry by grabbing straps etc on far side of boat, do scissors kick and throw one elbow over the IK to the other side. PFD should not interfere, and is absolutely necessary. Wear it don't carry it.
      If sea kayaking and you spill, you should have what is called a paddle float - that is bag you tie on to end of your paddle, then inflate, tie the other end of the paddle on at right angles behind your seat - stretchable straps on most sea kayaks are too flexible, so need something more sturdy, quite frankly I've practice this a lot and its a big job in cold Pacific NW water, and whatever sea conditions upset you likely still exist so you may spill a couple of times getting in - google search - paddle float rescue. Personally this is a tentative way to re-enter in chaotic sea state as once your boat has water in it, it is not very stable.
      Years ago we added a different system to our kayaks, can't recall the name but basically looks like little tube [8-10" around by 3'feet] w straps to another tube that fits on both sides of the cockpit, [kind of water wings for sea kayak] snaps and buckles added at home make it easy to put on - then you lean across and blow up the air tube opposite you -its very stable and you can get in and kayak will float usually upright while you bail /pump water, put your skirt back on, pump inside skirt next to your waist and pump, -
      We purchase the NRS sea-kayak vest last summer, used it a lot for sailing [with inflatable PFD harness over for serious sailing and then alone for inflatable kayaking once at anchor - while circumnavigating Vancouver Island. Its great, as the back float doesn't jam on back of your seat. Have fun and don't let all this info scare you off - just keep asking questions and take a class - J

      This vest provides me with plenty of floatation to have no problem reentering my boat.  However, various factors also need to be considered when attempting to reenter your boat such as water conditions, personal skill level and just because a person weighs 160 pounds doesn't necessarily mean their body buoyancy will be exactly the same.

      A:

      I should note that while I did not try and re-enter my kayak, I had no flotation issues with my vest when I got swamped last fall in my boat and I'm about 225 pounds. I had my paddle teathered to my boat with a leash and just swam to shore pulling the boat and re-entered from shore. With the flotation pads in the C Vest in the front and behind the neck, this vest makes it very easy to turn on your back and if snugly adjusted you will have no problem at your weight of 160. Read the article below for more info on PFD Flotation Ratings. You C Vest is a Type III. Most Type IIIs are about 15.5 Pounds of flotation. The C Vest is as mentioned 16.5 and therefore exceeds the USCG standards by a full pound of flotation.
      Dan Larson
      Buoyancy is the force (in pounds) required to keep a person's head and chin afloat above water. Most adults need just an extra 7 to 12 pounds of buoyancy to stay afloat. Additionally, your weight, body fat, lung size, clothing and whether the water is rough or calm are all factors to staying on top of the water. In general, the more physically fit you are, the more lift you need.
      To check buoyancy, tilt your head back and relax your body. Your chin should be above water and your breathing should be easy. If your mouth is not above the water, select a different PFD with more buoyancy. It should not ride up or go over your head. However, if your stomach is larger than your chest, ride-up may occur. Remember, it will be different bouncing around in swift water where currents may be jostling or pulling you down than it will be in calm waters.
      The USCG requires the following minimum buoyancy:
      Type of PFD
      Min. Adult Buoyancy (lbs.)
      Type I
      22.0
      Type II
      15.5
      Type III
      15.5
      Type IV
      Ring Buoys & Cushions
      16.5 & 18.0
      Type V
      Hybrids & Special Use
      7.5 (deflated) - 22.0 (fully inflated) & 15.5-22.0

      A:

      Your body naturally has lots of buoyancy. The Coast Guard has found that 7-12 pounds of extra flotation will help most adults keep their heads above water. So, they've mandated a minimum of 15.5 pounds of flotation for most recreational life jackets. There are many jackets with higher flotation; however, this makes them more bulky, which can interfere with things like your reentry in your kayak after a swim.

      I have this vest. I weigh a lot, about 290, but don't float as much as you would expect for a fat guy. The vest keeps me high enough in the water that it is no issue, and getting back in is straightforward enough. Its never all that easy for me, but I don't feel as if more floatation would help. I REALLY like the abundant pockets, I bought this because it had a pocket for my marine radio for sea adventures. but the others are very useful for both sea and backcountry trips.

      When the jacket is new it provides 16.5 pounds of buoyancy. Over time, with compression and aging of the foam, any jacket will lose some buoyancy.

      A:

      Courtesy of the US Power Squadron
      " When purchaseing a PFD, it's important that you not only buy the right type, but one that was made for someone your size. Today, most PFDs are labeled with the weight in pounds that can be supported by that particular life jacket, but what exactly does pounds of buoyancy mean?
      If something is buoyant, that means it can hold something afloat. For example, if you had a Type I PFD that is required to have 22 pounds of buoyancy, it would be capable of holding 22 pounds of material afloat.
      So how could a PFD with 22 pounds of buoyancy hold up a 200-pound person in the water? About 80% of the body is water. 200lbs. X 80% = 160 lbs.
      Water in the body has no weight in the water so the PFD doesn't have to support 160 of those 200 lbs. 200 lbs. - 160 lbs. = 40 lbs.
      So in the example of a 200-pound person, the PFD only really needs to support 40 lbs.
      But if the PFD only has a buoyancy rating of 22 pounds, how can it hold up 40 pounds? On average, most people's bodies have about 15% fat and fat is lighter than water so the PFD doesn't have to support that weight.
      200 lbs. X 15% = 30 lbs. 40 lbs. - 30 lbs. = 10 lbs.
      A 200-pound person really only weighs about 10 pounds in the water! So, the PFD really only has to support 10 pounds. A PFD with a 22 pound rating is more than enough to keep a 200-pound person afloat.
      Type I22 lbs.
      Type II15.5 lbs.
      Type III15.5 lbs.
      Ring Buoy16.5 lbs.
      Boat Cushion18 lbs.
      Hybrid inflatable22/7.5 lbs.
      Special use device15.5 to 22 lbs.

      There may be slight variations between jackets as how the reflective strips are sewn and the front strips are irregular in shape and difficult to measure. The one I measured has approx. 4.5 square inches on the back and 6.5 square inches on the front, split between the two shoulder pieces. The piping is not reflective.

      There is not all that much reflective material, and no reflective piping.
      There are two trapezoidal patches on the front of about 5 sq inches each
      and a rectangular center patch of ~3.75 square inches.
      The trapezoids on the front of the vest are approximately 6" on the base,
      4" on the top and 1" tall. The rectangle on the back is 3" wide by 1.25"
      tall..

      As for specific dimensions of each pocket, I don't know that answer. What I carry in my PFD is my PLB, hand-held weather meter, camera, gel packs and nose plugs. My PBL is probably the size of your GPS, cell phone the size of my camera and your compass and mirror the size of my weather meter. I have plenty of room in my vest, as well as a little left over. I have had 5 PFD's in the past and none have the capacity this PFD will provide. With what you carry you will have no problems, and remain comfortable and mobile. I love this PFD and will buy another when it wears out!

      The two main pockets are basically 5"x5"X2" although the tops are curved
      so they're a little less. My GPS fits with room to spare. A phone would
      fit fine. The pockets on top of the main pockets are 5x5 as well but
      pretty shallow, but would probably work for a compass & mirror. The
      little top pocket is 3"X3"X1+" & makes a good whistle pocket.

      OK, I purchased the Cvest because of the large pockets, I am an
      expedition kayaker and carry a radio, EPIRB, flares, signal mirror,
      whistle, strobe light, reading glasses, and something to munch on in my
      vest. I can say that it holds everything with room to spare. However I
      no longer use the Cvest because of three reasons (1) The Velcro fastener
      for the radio pocket should be a snap buckle. I had is come apart
      several times on a recent two week trip in Maine. (2) Most of the
      pockets do not have loops or tabs inside the pocket to tie your gear off
      to, most are external to the pockets and create a mess of small lines
      all over the front of the PFD. (3) No secure method of securing a strobe
      light on the back shoulder of the PFD. The Cvest is very comfortable.

      I don't own this hydration pack but am familiar with the PFD. The cVest has a short back (flotation up high covering half the back) while I believe the pack would attach, it might be awkward as it would hang from above without contacting anything below unless it could be synched into your lower back. Probably one of those things you would need to try and see how it works unless someone can give you info that has tried both together. Hope this helps some.

        I use this product in ocean kayaking. I am usually by myself. It keeps important equipment close at hand. The radio pocket is great if you remove the belt clip from the radio.

            Thought the features were great but found for a 5" 104 lb female it was too long waisted, bulky and heavy. Loved that it was designed for safety and function and not a just a fashion statement.

              Super PFD. Use on my solo canoe and it has a pocket for everything. Very comfortable.

              An awesome PFD. Lots of pockets and very comfortable. This is the only vest ( and I tried 5 others) with a back high enough to clear my kayak seat. I bought another one for my wife now more of my friends and kayaking buddies are ordering them too.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Excellent service and product.

                Comments about NRS cVest Mesh Back PFD:

                This PFD meets all my needs as a solo kayaker. I never take it off and it is so comfortable that I don't feel the need. I waited awhile to write the review so I could really use it. In warm weather higher that 80 degrees any vest is warm, this one wasn't bad but nothing a little river water couldn't fix. It is also very visible, and has a lot of storage. I would highly recommend it.
