We have several Chica PFD's and it's one of my favorites due to the thin foam on the lower back. This thin area is for those who have kayaks with higher seat backs. I/we've never had any trouble with the zippers and as for the clip at the waist, no problem there either. If my boat goes over, it stays on me.
Another feature is the cutout on the inside, upper, front for women or men that may have muscular chests. When we have a group of people to borrow our boats, the ladies always come ask me which are the ones they used before.
As with any canoe or kayak they must be fit to each person's physique, paddling style, and including boat dimensions. These are all factor's for comfort while on the water.
Love these Extrasport PFD's.
