I have one. Comfortable pfd with allot of pockets. The radio pocket is tight on my VFH radio just fits. Only one of the large zip pockets has a tie down loop inside which I think, at least BOTH large pockets should have not just the one. Has good flotation as I have practiced self rescues with it on and no problem doing layback rolls.

I also have an Astral V-8 which is a cooler vest since it has better ventilation but only one pocket on that pfd so no good for expedition use. At least not for me. I carry a VHF, a PLB a protein bar, emergency space blanket, chapstick, knife. whistle, nose plugs.
