neoprene vest...help

I just bought a neoprene vest this year, one of the thin non USCG approved type. This past weekend my buddy insisted on trying it out, but he has a larger gut than me. Incidently the vest stretched out and now rides up on me when I'm sitting in the water. Is there any way to shrink these vests, because I feel like I just threw away $100. I was thinking mabey throwing it in the dryer, but any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks is advance.

Try covering it with shrink wrap!

thanks a lot guys, so I'm assuming there is no fix to this? Time for other people to start bringing their own gear.

I'd suggest getting the $100 from your buddy so you can get a new one. Especially since he insisted on using it.

Best solution... pony up for the nice neo-vests (ie. Oniell, Body Glove, Jet Pilot and Quiksilver) for yourself, and buy the Cosco brand neo-vests for the guests...

I agree. I bought wife, kids, and myself our vest and have the cheap community vest for everyone else. I let one person use my outlaw and they through it on the floor then started stepping on it. NO more!!!

I have a broken buckle on one of my vests. Where do you guys think I could find a replacement? I already check the dealer.
