To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased 3 of these and each one was slightly different. The red one was the longest and just felt like an overall better product. The green one was the second best about 2" shorter than the red. The blue one was terrible. It was the shortest and the diameter was about 3/4" smaller. The skin on the blue one was very wrinkly. I sent the blue one back for a replacement. That is the reason for my 3 star review. It was a hassel to have to exchange one. If they were all like the red one I would have given 5 stars.
I bought this for my wife who was looking for more buoyancy in the gulf of Mexico. My first impression was that it heavy. The second thing we noticed that it is a sand magnet. Lastly, the skin is getting tears after a couple of weeks. Can not recommend.
