    • A. A max weight is not listed on the vest. A min weight of 90 lbs. is listed.

    • A. The jacket itself says intended for wearers over 90 lbs. Per http://boatsafe.com/kids/buoyancy.htm, the jacket holds up a body that is 80% water and 15% fat, so only 5% of the body makeup is heavier than water and requires support. 5% of 310 pounds = 15.5 lbs of buoyant material which is what the Stearns type II has. So the jacket should support 300# +. The reason a maximum cannot be given is that the total weight it will support is dependent on how much fat the wearer has. A fatter person will need a less buoyant jacket than a thinner one of the exact same weight. A 100 lb. person with no fat would need 20 lbs of buoyant material.

    • A. From all the research I did before I bought this vest, it is for any adult to wear (as long as the belt fits around their waist!) with no minimum or maximum weight. A Type I or II vest, with some kind of flotation material which goes around the back of the neck, is the only type of life vest which will tend to turn someone face up when they are in the water - kind of an important feature, I think - plus the bright orange color will make it easy to be seen by rescuers.

    I did some research on life vests and found that the only vest that might save one's life if unconscious is a Type I or II vest. I don't do a lot of canoeing, so didn't want to spend a huge amount on a fancy vest. I was happy to find the Stearns Adult Type II Life Jacket Vest at Wal-Mart for only $8 + shipping. The vests were delivered surprisingly fast and were in perfect condition.

    If you're looking for the cheapest product out there, this is it. It is rather bulky, so if you are going to be spending a long time in a vest or if you need to have mobility to tend to young children while on the water, I would recommend a different one. It buckles on very easily & was a great value. We used it on a rafting trip and never fell out of the boat, so I cannot attest to its buoyancy.
