Hyperlite TALL NEOPRENE Life Jacket up to 5XL-TALL 2019
The Hyperlite TALL is the LARGEST all neoprene life vest in the world and the only TALL NEOPRENE life jacket in the world. The 2019 Hyperlite Indy TALL is BIG and Coast Guard Approved for sizes 2XL-TALL, 3XL-TALL, 4XL-TALL, 5XL-TALL. The biggest size, 5XL-TALL (5XLT), will fit a chest size up to 66 inches, but stretches bigger because of the additional stretch that is in Neoprene fabric. This oversized life jacket is 3 inches longer in the torso so it will cover the belly a little better and wont look like a bra on tall men. Plus sized women buy this life jacket too, since there just are not any womens vests that big.
If you are over 6' tall, we recommend a TALL life vest to give you more torso coverage. If you are short, unfortunately, the REGULAR LENGTH NEOPRENE vests only go to size 3XL. You will be able to find many very large REGULAR NYLON vests, but not NEOPRENE. (Please see related products).
Most men 400lbs (and a little more than 400lbs) have tried on the 5XLT and it fits. This size may be alternative to the 4XL/7XL Full Throttle Nylon Vest if you want extra torso coverage and the soft feel of a NEOPRENE vest.
Buyer beware of ads on the internet for "BIG and TALL" vests. The vests may be BIG, but not TALL. The size stamp, for 3XL-TALL for example, MUST say "Tall" or "3XLT" with "T" designated as Tall. If it does not say that on the stamp, it is a regular length vest, NOT a TALL vest.
This Hyperlite TALL neo life vest has large armholes cutout for freedom of movement so you can be active in the water. It has a front zipper to keep it snug and in place. It has segmented foam panels that bend and flex. It is light and comfortable, but even with the thin profile, it has full flotation with Coast Guard Approval. Move, paddle, row. Ride behind a boat in a towable tube, water ski on an 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.
See our posted a photo of a customer wearing the 4XL-TALL. He is 6'7" 350 lbs. We also posted a picture of a man over 400 lbs wearing the 5XL-TALL.
Note on the 5XL-TALL (5XLT). This size is unique in two ways:
(1) It runs a little BIG because of the stretch in Neoprene fabric, so the belts have a little extra contingency strap length so you can still buckle it up if you stretch it beyond 66".
(2) The second unique feature is that the 5XL-TALL was manufactured with extra neoprene and foam to reach a size of 5XL-TALL. With this extra boyancy, the vest was rated using the harmonized North American Life Jacket Standards Rating system. The performance number is 70. The number 70 is similar to the rating for Type III which is a life jacket used used in active water sports, close fitting, and very buoyant. This new rating makes it Coast Guard Approved for use in both USA and CANADA. (Please see photo of the Coast Guard stamp)
We publish the manufactures size charts but do not guarantee a fit based on those charts because every person has a different body shape. Buyer is responsible for return shipping if it does not fit. The possibility of a wearable product fitting your particular body shape is a risk everybody takes when buying online from any online store. Buyer is responsible for choice of size and waives all liability for his choice. A vest that is way too big and loose fitting on you is not safe.

Feels good! Nice and lightweight, soft, and easy to adjust. The only advice I would give is get 1 size bigger than you are. I always wear 2XL but needed a 3XL with this vest. It's great that it covers my full upper body and doesn't feel like a kids vest or half vest.
Excellent product & price, perfect size 5XL-TALL, delivered sooner than expected.
