Comments about Stearns Hybrid Fishing/Paddle Vest:

I'm 6'4" - 220 -- fits me fine and doesn't ride up. I'd like to see some D rings at the lower edges to attach clip-on items. The pull coil is rather weak as are the zippers. Time will tell.

Shopper  Will the oversized fit 2-XXL or 3-XXXL?
LARRY C  I buy 2xl sweatshirts and this vest fits me fine. Unsure if a 3lx may get it to fit.
Shopper  Will the oversized fit 2-XXL or 3-XXXL?
LARRY C  I buy 2xl sweatshirts and this vest fits me fine. Unsure if a 3lx may get it to fit.
Shopper  Should I purchase universal or regular if I am looking for XXL on previous Sterns Vest?
RALPH M  If you have previously purchased an XXL size, I would more than likely purchase an over-sized vest if I were you. These are great fishing vests for the money and would definitely recommend one like this for all fisherman in any kind of a boat.
