Comp Vests

Looking to pick up a comp vest for surfing. Still want the CGA vest for wakeboarding, but I'd like something a little lighter weight and flexible for the surfing.

I've looked on Evo and boardco... they both have pretty much the same stuff. Any recommendations from some vests others have here? I'd prefer something with a zipper. The pullover is too difficult when wet haha.

I have been looking and trying on stuff for few seasons and never found anything I that I really liked until this year. I picked up the Oneil Slasher and love this vest. I tried it on at the boat show and liked it but was reluctant to buy at that time based on the price until last week. Finally got tired of using my old coast guard approved wakeboard vest. Fits great, has a zipper, reversible, tight enough to not need a buckle, and the quality you can expect from Oneil.

I have an Oneil Guru and an Eagle vest. They are both extremely comfortable.
