I like Stohlquist and Astral... just depends on what you are using it for.

As many have said before- whatever fits you comfortably is your best bet. Go try different ones on and see what fits your body type best. Most of the big name companies (Astral, Stohlquist, MTI, NRS, etc) are pretty similar for what most boaters need.

Other than being scolded for calling it a life vest here is a link to the responses I got when I asked a similar question.

Go with what fits your body best. All it does is hang around your neck, until you need it to do some work, which is when the fit becomes most important.
