Just passing along a very good deal on vests, I'm in no was associated with them .

My wife was so excited becuase i was getting her the Neopolitan vest and when I got to checking out I found out they won't ship to Canada. What a bummer, I had 4 vests in my cart for the whole family.

Anyways, check them out. There are a lot for between $20 and $35.

Hey 501,

Thanks for the heads up, I may buy a couple of items myself.

If you want to ship them to me, I would be happy to ship them to you. You just pay me the cost of shipping to you. I did this for another fellow Moomba owner in Canada on three pairs of Polk Audio speakers and it worked out fine.

I live in Portland, Oregon, zip code is 97035 in case you want so see how much shipping is from me to you.

REALLY? Wow cab13367, that is an awesome offer thanks so much and if you are willing, I will take you up on that offer. At $30 a vest how can a person go wrong and the shipping in the US was very low.

This board has been a wealth of knowledge to me over the years and I always enjoy learning new things but it also brings together good people like cab13367 who offer to help out fellow Moomba owners just to help out! How can you beat that?

Everyone in the family will be excited to get new vests again!

501,

Sent you a PM with the logistics. It's my pleasure to help out a fellow Moomba owner. I hated to see your family be disappointed because Stearns doesn't ship to Canada :)

And thanks for the heads up - I've been wanting to buy a heater shirt and a wakeboard vest but like stretch, didn't want to pony up big dollars for them. I was able to buy both for under $90 shipped. BTW, they're shipping is reasonable - was only $10.95 for my two items.

I got this a couple weeks ago and forgot to share it. Sorry! I picked up an extra pair of gloves and the Nevin handle for a spare. Shipping was quick and cheap. Al, thanks again for going the extra mile.

This sale has been going on for a while now and there have been a ton of sizing issues because Helium has different model vests and a large in one model might be a medium in others and even a small. I wear a large Ronix and Jet Pilot but yet I can fit in a medium and a small Helium. I did score a couple on this sale but they were female vests. There's a long post about this sale in the other forum

I picked up 3 of them a few weeks ago. I was happy with 2 of them, the 3rd was WAY off in sizing. Instead of messing with a return I just decided to keep it for guests that might need that size.

Exactly the problem I had. I have a helium vest that I bought a year or two ago that I love. So I bought the same size in another style and it's not even close. Not sure why a company would use different sizing by model, but if you can get one to fit they have some fantastic vests. And for $30... it's worth a shot.

That's what happened to me a couple years ago. I ordered a vest that came 2 sizes too large. I put on 40 lbs. so it would fit. Now it takes a lot of beer just to maintain the weight but I'm committed.

501, Cab and i were the ones who did the Polk speakers and all worked out well ,other than waiting for delivery via Snail mail. Thanks again Cab. Now i'm in the slow process of changing other stereo components to match the deal that i/we all got on those speakers.

Maybe even just a large, depends on which of the two models you get. One is true to size, the other is way off

How can I tell which is which? It'ms the Van Helium modle.

Ok, so I found out that the Van Helium in a Small is 32-36, a Medium is 36-40, a Large is a 40-44, an XL is 44-48 and a XXL 48-52. Hope this helps eveyone. Now keep in mind that I am not 100% for sure on these. I found the Large and XL sizes on a post in Wake World. So I just used common sense to figure out the other sizes. I'd say I'm 93.5% sure...

Red page 1 and page 2 about the different vest and the different sizings before you make your purchase.

Got my Josh Sanders wake vest and Josh Sanders 2 mil long sleeve wetsuit top today. I got both in medium and they fit perfect. The vest is just a little snug around the chest but not a big deal. I am 5'-10", 155 lbs.

I gave away the vest I bought for myself as it didn't fit at all true to size. The wife and kid love theirs though.

I got the Josh Saunders non-CGA vest and the Josh Saunders long sleeve heater shirt (more like a wetsuit top, really), both in medium. They fit and work great (I'm 5'-10", 160lbs)! Padding does not shift. And many people have commented how nice they look. Pic below.

i got 5 jackets and all of them get used and are liked i also bought a side entry non cg approved. it feels little weird but i do like not nearly as bulky i'll use it to surf but use my regular one when i wake board not sure it'd hold me up if i get knocked out.
