That's alright. Socks and kleenex work just fine, except when it rains... ;(

The secret is putting them in a zip lock bag and then they are waterproof for ya.

Do you think where it's shaped a little differently in front to allow "extra room" that it would be a problem for a guy? I guess I'm wondering if the gap would be big enough for concern? I know vests are supposed to be snug all around and since I can't try it on before ordering... I'm a bit conflicted if it's worth ordering or not.
Check out the ones at Big Dee's. They carry generic Airowear vests.

I think Airowear does sell a guy and/or not curvy female version of the vest. I distinctly remember calling the store and asking which vest I needed since I'm a little small up top.

I could possibly take a picture of mine on if you want to see it. It appears quite flat when on

Sure!

I know Airowear sells male vests, but I cannot get it from the distributor that I plan on buying it from. Also, like a lot of things in the equestrian world the male equivalent of certain items always seems to be a bit higher priced lol.

Warning: Ipad pictures :p

Okay here is my airowear vest, right when I grabbed it off the hanger. It was very stiff and flat when I grabbed it, since it is activated with heat to conform to a body. In the summer it was a lot easier to mold with just my hands, but it was 90F out then, and it's 40F right now.

I put it on and it was tight around my curves, but within 5 minutes it shape to my body and kind of "disappeared" where I barely noticed it.

The picture does not do it justice at all.

I took it off after 5 minutes, and it went flat to having indentions to where my breasts are.

I really, really wish I had a working camera right now to really show the molding effect these vests have. I love how the shoulders have adjustments on them, and the sides. If you are flat chested, it will mold to that. I wear a medium about as half as tight as it can go, and I am a B32. I would just look at a sizing chart and go from there. I actually ordered medium and large at the same time, and tried them both on to see, and sent the large back (: Hope this helps!
