green jacket vs. ronin pro

getting a new pfd, narrowed it down to these two. both companies have amazing customer service so that's a wash. green has more features, ronin is a little more comfy(at least in the shop). looking for any additional insight. thanks

Comfort rules IMO. What extra features does the Green have? I had a 300 and replaced with the Ronin. They're both great. I prefer the pullover but the Ronin was more comfy this time.

For what its worth I have a ronin and found it hard to get on initially. Decided to just use it as a pullover leaving all buckles and the zipper attached. This made it really easy to get on and works great for me. Haven't ever used a green jacket, so can't comment on that. Both great pfd's, don't think you could go wrong with either.

You gotta try them on. I like Astral, they like Kokatat, she likes Stohlquist, and he likes NRS. As far as quality and features they're all together.
