    Shoot. He's about 47# right now and really skinny. I think the large would just be too big.

    I can't imagine a 47lb or 47" kid fitting in a small RSTV 2. My 43", 39 lb daughter has outgrown it by height (she is mostly in 5 shirts).

    Really?!?! I guess I'd better get a large!

    She just fits the waist (she wears 4 shorts) but it is too short. They have a very narrow window of fit for slim kids. By the time the waist fits, they are often getting too short.

    Re: ISO RSTV

    I wonder if a large would be too big but a small too small.

    FWIW my skinny son fit fine in his size small until he reached the 60lb limit. Actually, it seemed too long for his torso for much of the time he wore it but I was assure it was still safe despite the shoulders of the vest not being flush with his shoulders.

    I have the small he just outgrew but it has some velcro wear issues and am still awaiting a response from the company. So I may have a small available to sell once I hear back.
