Stohlquist Wedge-e is a great example of an paddling company designing a multi-sport vest that sailors can get into.
Putting the vest on for the first time I immediately notice the fit: very trim and contoured with the top of the collar stopping in the middle chest. I can roll my neck all the way around and not touch the shoulder straps or back and front collar. The Wedge-e has a compressive feel and is lighter than I expected. The buoyancy foam is not segmented so it bends around the shape of your torso, I like this feature because it allows for more compression under a pinny or rash guard. The zippering system aids in wrapping the vest comfortably around your body. I also noticed how thick the neoprene shoulder straps are so that they protect your skin from the adjustable webbing and for a more comfortable fit.
Wedge-e the whole time I wrote this blog and forgot it was on. If you are looking for a low-profile, contour fit PFD this summer the Wedge-e is right up your ally.
