I bought this to use at the Wayfarer Worlds this year as I needed a new buoyancy aid. I also required a BA with a large pocket - and this certainly is the one! I could carry a spare neck buff, sunglasses, suncream & some sailing snacks in the pocket, as well as gloves when I wasn't wearing them. Unlike my previous non-rooster BAs, having the pocket this full didn't make it uncomfortable to wear. 10/10 would recommend.
