Hyperlite is the only big name in watersports making TALL oversized neoprene Life Jackets
Largest NEOPRENE life vest in the world and the only TALL oversized NEOPRENE life jacket. The 2018 Hyperlite Indy TALL is BIG and Coast Guard Approved for sizes 2XL-TALL, 3XL-TALL, 4XL-TALL. This Summer 2018 will bring us the 5XL-TALL. This TALL neoprene life jacket has an extra 3" in length so it will cover the tummy a little better and wont look like a bra on tall men. Plus sized women buy this life jacket too, because there just aren't any womens vests that size. CGA means US Coast Guard Approved.
If you are over 6' 1" tall, we recommend a TALL life vest to give you more torso coverage.
BUYER BEWARE OF FAKE ADS for TALL. Fake Ads may say Big and Tall, but zoom in on the size label to see if it is true. If the label doesnt say TALL, its not.:
BUYER BEWARE OF UNKNOWN BRANDS. For example, the off brand Hybrid Tech Life Jacket is an is NOT all neoprene. It is Nylon with small patches of Neorpene on shoulders and sides. Compare this to the name brand Hyperlite TALL which is an all neoprene. The Hyperlite is higher priced than others because it is all neoprene. If you are looking for a more economical TALL nylon life jacket, consider the HO Sports Tall nylon life jacket--please click on the related products tab above to see it.
Hyperlite vests repel water much better than the cheap off brand life jackets. Hyperlite has a patterned Hyperlite neoprene formula which does not get soggy or heavy when sprayed with water. Neoprene, the material used in wetsuits, is warmer on your body compared to nylon. The neoprene shell is soft and comfortable, not scratchy. Neoprene wont create arm pit abrasion like some nylon life jackets with that extra belt near the arm pit.
This Hyperlite oversized TALL neo life vest has large arm holes for freedom of movement so you can be active in the water for sports like kayaking, canoeing, towed watersports, and jet skiing. It has a front zipper to keep it snug. It has segmented foam panels that bend and flex. Similar to the Indy design, it is not too thick so that the vest stayes light and comfortable. Even with this thin profile, it is fully Coast Guard Approved with full flotation. Move, paddle, row. Ride behind a boat in a towable tube, water ski on a Big Daddy waterski, ride a big wakesurfer. Go boating or jet skiing. Go down a river on a river raft or relax in a fishing boat.
SIZES: The manufactures size charts are based on chest size for a safe snug fit. If you are using for relaxation, go a size bigger. If your tummy measures bigger than your chest, go a size bigger. If your tummy is a lot larger than your chest, please measure it an see if it falls into the chest size range. NEOPRENE will stretch and my fit a little larger than what the chart specifies but we do not guarantee a fit because people have different body shapes. Men up to 350 lbs, possibly a little more, depending on chest size, should be able to wear the 4XL-TALL. When we get the the 5XL-TALL this summer, men up to 400 lbs should be able to wear this life jacket. If you are bigger than that, the only vest that may fit is the Full Throttle Nylon (which is not a tall but reaches a chest size of 70"). Pls click on related products tab to see other vests.
WE ARE OUT OF 4XLT UNTIL SUMMER 2018, BUT HAVE PLENTY OF size 3XLT. 5XLT will arrive Summer 2018.
