Pro Tip: If you typically bring a lot of gear with you for rescue scenarios, the Maximus Centurion is probably the best choice for you. Unlike other rescue PFDs, the pocket doesn't get in the way as much as the clam-shell single pocket designs, and allows the vest to countour more snugly to your body since the bulk is separated across several pockets.
