Best Wakeboard Vests

Our reviews on some of the best wakeboard vests you can buy

Wakeboard vests.

Ahhhh...wakeboard vests. We all wear them; we all love them. Not only can you look like your favorite pro rider while you're on the water, but you can be safe out there too. While we advise you to stay privy to the laws of the waterway you ride on in terms of picking a competition (comp) wakeboard vest versus USCGA vest, also be sure to choose a vest that keeps you afloat and your head out of the water if something were to go wrong. Every body type is different, so get out there and try a few wakeboard vests on to find out which vest style and size works best for you. Remember, when trying on wakeboard vests, the tighter the better! Any little gaps of air between the vest and your skin will undoubtedly cause the vest to rise up from your shoulders when you're in the water. Happy hunting for your new wakeboard vest this year, and stay safe!
