Green Vest V. Extract- Help!

I need help with vests! ive paddled, both kayaking and commercial raft guiding, in a stholquist wedge-e for YEARS! i finally lost it, and need a new vest- im going for a rescue vest and need advice if anyone has much experience in either of these vests.... my main issue with the green vest is the lame "back protection" and lack of ventilation for rafting those hot days. the wedge-e was superior for hot days!! the other issue is the "strapiness" and perhaps bulkyness of the GR.....ANY help appreciated!!

back protection is nice ,but probably more so for kayaking.

i don't think its overly hot anymore than any other jacket i have worn
