The kid's "job" is to have fun. The adult's job seems to be spoiling it, and giving the young one a vest that doesn't fit is one of the methods. We think kids have a better job, and we want one like it. So to ingratiate ourselves to them we created the Elk River Youth Vest. All of the cool divided pockets and mesh-lined comfort you've come to expect from Fishpond, but sized for those whose "employment opportunities" are a little more to our liking.
