The fit of wakeboarding vests is the most important feature of the vest. A vest that does not fit properly is not safe because it can come off in a fall. Adult vests are sized in terms of chest circumference. Children's vests are sized the same way but may also include weight restrictions. When choosing a wakeboarding vest it is important to choose a vest in the correct chest measurement range and also to try on the vest to ensure proper fit. Two different vests of the same chest measurement ranges may fit a wake boarder differently. For this reason it is important to try on the vests to see how they fit before making a purchase.
