In this video we show you how to tighten the straps to ensure the jacket won't ride up when you're in the water.

                  Kathleen, the back of the jacket from the bottom to the top of the blue is 17". From the bottom to the top of the zipper is 11". Hope that helps.

                  A:

                  It's adjustable, but measuring from the top on the blue shoulder on the back to the bottom of the back is 17". I am 5'2" with what I consider to be average proportions for a woman, and it fits me fine. I could shorten it by about 1" or lengthen it by 6"+. (This is the medium/large size.)

                How accurate is the sizing? I am just at the cusp of the high end of
                the med. Should I size up or is there a bit of play in the sizing?

                  PJ, any time you see a single "design flotation," in this case, 16 lbs, the foam flotation panels for all the sizes are the same, only the strap lengths are different.

                  I do not like anything too tight and bought Large and it's perfect for me.I buy everything in Large or XL depending on manufacturer since sizing varies and I do not like to have an obstructed breathing or discomfort of a tight fit around my chest.Hope this helps. I have 3 of these and use them for SUP and kayaking.

                  I would put myself at "cusp" as well. It fits great, but I'm not busty "34 C). It sizes out nicely around the waist if needed, but if you are bustier, I would probably go up a size.

                  Mine is a medium/large (both sizes are on the label) and fits snug but not tight. I take a size L t-shirt, wear a size 14 dress, 5'6" tall and quite busty.
                  I hope that's helpful.

                  Helen, the Linda is made by Astral Buoyancy. They've sculpted the foam at the top to help fit a woman's breasts.

                  Watch the video; it's made completely women-specific to be comfortable around the chest but not too bulky.

                  It's cut generously in the front to make room for your "girls." I'm pretty full-figured and find it very comfortable. When I put on my husband's PFD I feel all squished.

                  A:

                  MJ, Astral designed the Linda as a recreational kayaking jacket. Class V whitewater brings the real possibility of swimming in dangerous rapids. Also, anyone running Class V needs to be skilled and prepared not only for self rescue, but for participating in rescuing their boating partners. My recommendation would be a higher flotation, full-on rescue jacket. If you don't have swiftwater rescue training, you would be wise to acquire it before tackling that level of whitewater.

                  Ann,
                  I bought this for my girlfriend who is getting in to sea kayaking, but I think this could be used of paddle boarding all the same. Although if you are looking for something more light weight I'd recommend the Astral YTV.

                  I love the low cut arms but find the front too bulky. I think I should have spent the extra money and bought the Ninja.
