Review Detail

Orco Pro
Overall rating 

Heavy pull-over vest made of tough and long lasting materials with all the necessary safety features. Mine has so far done somewhere in between 300 and 500 days on the water (river and sea mixed) and still looks like fresh out of the shop. I had to change something, though: the D ring for the leash's carabiner is above the big buckle of the rescue belt. This way, there's a clicking noise at every move you make. I took that ring off and put it on the belt under the front pocket.


About Me
Mid-40s hobby paddler on whitewater (class III) and on the sea (mainly day-trips), about 120 days per year on the water. 1,96m (6'6") and 115 kg (260 lbs) with size 48 (14) feet
Pros / The Good
- tough and sturdy
- thick foam layers protect ribcage and backbone quite well
- good visibility / signal colors only
- sizes are rather big - fits the tall and heavy boys
- excellent shoulder padding for kayak transport
Cons / The Bad
- pockets rather small
- not very flexible due to thick foam layers
- carabiner "split D ring" in wrong position
