I really like the NRS Chinook - and i got it on sale so the price tag wasn't as big. In fact, i think it is on sale again for labor day: https://www.backcountry.com/nrs-chinook-personal-flotation-device?skid=NRS007W-OR-XXL&ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6bnJzIGNoaW5vb2s6MToxOm5ycyBjaGlub29r
looks like it is 25% off so $82
I like it be cause it fits well, it has lots of pocket storage space for anything you may need to keep on you, and has a high back so if your kayak has seat it rests above the seat back which makes it more comfortable. This was my first and only PFD i've owned so take my bias into consideration, but I do like it so far. Had it for about 5 months now.
