Looking at this for my daughter, but having an issue deciding between an MD or a ML. She is a OK with the height 5'4", a bit over the weight (165), and at max chest size (40") for the MD. She currently is using a small BC, but it is tight. Suggestions?
I think the MD would fit her. My wife has a small, she is in the middle range for the product measurements, and has plenty of room. Seems the BCD runs a little big. My only concern would be if your daughter is still growing, you might be better off with the ML. By the way, this is a very good quality BCD. My wife has no complaints, really likes it.
Based on the fact that your daughter is using a small BC currently, I want to say she should be able to use the medium in this one. The fit is a little smaller than an equivalent size unisex BC, so if the current small she has is unisex, you'll need a medium to get a SLIGHTLY bigger fit, but not much - which I think is exactly what you want. The problem you might run into if you go to a large, with her being only 5'4" is that the side pockets will sit too low and block her ability to pull her leg up at the hip, which is a real pain when trying to get fins on and off (been there!). Never fear with Leisure Pro though - they're great about swapping out for you if you're not happy with the size you order. Hope that helps!
Hi donald I own this bcd and i would suggest going with the MD on it for her i normaly wear a medium and had to get it in extra small they have a good mulit size ability so i think that at 165 she will do fine with the MD
The EX 300 has adjustable waist belt. Inside the vest at the support panel the waist belt is held in with velcro and can be adjusted several inches either way to make it shorter or longer. The MD should fit fine with her weight.
I have a chest of 40" and the ML Aeris EX300 is perfect. It has an adjustable waist strap that allows for a perfect fit.
medium is fine, I've tried the BC on and it fits me ok, and I'm a man, 5'8" and 180 lbs, so it should fit her without problem.
I got my daughter a small and should have gotten an extra small. She is 5'5" and weighs about 102lbs. The small fits height-wise but is loose behind the arms. Hopefully she'll grow into it.
I am 5'3 and 190, I have the ML BC after using it about 30 times or so it fits a bit loose in the chest. It is fine in the waist.
