Rated 4 out of 5 by Snoopy25 Life jacket
Without having yet used the above item with my grandchildren, I cannot give it an excellent rating as of yet. I will however say that it is very well made and I hope it lives up to its expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BassDontVote Correctly sized for Juniors
Junior size is meant to be 50 to 90 lbs. After reading many negative reviews of other manufacturers Junior size PFDs not fitting from 70 to 90 lbs I was happy to read a good review of this one. My granddaughter is 54 in tall and 80 lbs and it fits well now and with plenty of room left. It's well made and she says it was comfortable.

I bought this for my nephew and he wore it kayaking - had no complaints. I like the bright yellow color, as you can easily see someone if they should fall in the water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skelley Discovery Jr. PFD
Very happy with the two Discovery Jr. PFDs. I purchased them for my 9 and 10 year old boys, 70# and 80#. Fit very well with extra room to grow too. The yellow is an excellent visible color. The PFDs were also (very importantly) comfortable at the armholes, shoulders and neck so the boys wore them for hours without complaints of rubbing and chafing as with other PFDs we have had. The one thing I cannot comment on is durability as they have only been used twice, but I feel confident that we will be able to use them for several seasons as the weight limit allows.

This life jacket has worked perfectly for my 6 year-old son this summer. He has used it while canoing and also while swimming. It is slim, not bulky, and also comfortable.

Great PFD.....we love the pockets. My son couldn't wait to hit 50 lbs so he could get a jacket like his sister's. He LOVES the green color......neons are back in style. It's hard to find PDFs for sailing around us....they all have the straps going around them which get caught on things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 7777777mom fits nicely
I bought this for my son and he really likes it. Fits well - adjusts to fit a range of size. Also, it seems comfortable. Not sure how well it will work in an emergency as thankfully we did not need it :) but hoping it will live up to it's description. I'm very rarely disappointed with the quality of LLBean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beanlovesbeans Nicely adjustable
We did not realize how easy and how much this life jacket will adjust to fit a child's size for a very long time. It is lightweight and my 5 year old son loves it.

I can always count on LL Bean for quality and safety. The life jacket is the perfect fit and color for my little man. He doesn't complain about wearing it at all!
