Not sure they really make a splash jacket that is supposed to go over the PFD. I have a stohlquist splash jacket in large size but it wont go over my PFD. Plus looking for somthing that has some kind of seals at the wrist not just velcro as water gets past that and migrates up my arm geting me all wet. Right now I roll the sleeves up to keep this from happening for now.
I guess I could just buy a XXL and see if it would fit over the PFD. This way I can take it off or put it on without removing my PFD. But thinking the sleeves would be really too long in that size?

These are specifically designed to be worn over the PFD.
I've worn splash tops over life jackets.|

It can be a little hard getting the splash top on and off, but hasn't ever been a problem.

One is the storm cag as mentioned above. Last I looked you will run into everything from regular looking jackets that are cut large to the ones like the Kokatat's that have a bungie cord rim that will go around the coaming.

to quickly grab a splash jacket and put it on over a PFD in a sudden downpour. I would rather watch the weather and put it on under the PFD before it rains. It is warmer having fewer air gaps close to the body and doesn't obstruct the things on the PFD such as whistle, beacon, or knife. As additional logic, I paddle high altitude lakes for fishing and storms up there get quite windy and cold.

Everyone I paddle with has one of these. Not only are they good for on water they make a great '1-man shelter' on shore during a lunch stop. They are long enough to pull your legs under and sit fully covered on cold wet windy days.
