    1. I am wanting to order the leather vest, but am curious as to sizing. I believe I need an XL, but a lot of times how things are sized variates. If I order an XL what do I do if it does not fit right? Can it be returned for another size? Thank you.

    2. I’m loving the leather vest. I’m a couple of weeks past discharge, so things are still healing up, and the vest doesn’t press on any tender places. The vest is FAR more comfortable than anything else I’ve tried. My back no longer hurts and I don’t waddle when I walk. And it looks really nice – you can’t really tell I’ve got an LVAD. I did find I need to arrange things differently than the photo. I have a HeartMate 3, and the left battery cable is barely long enough to reach the controller if it’s in the right snap pocket. So I swap the positions of the controller and right battery.
      Perhaps a future solution would be to place a cell phone pocket on the right side as well as the left, so I could put the controller there. It might need to be a bit sturdier, but it would avoid having to stretch to the snap pocket. But with the current design, swapping the controller and right battery works for me. I am delighted with it as is!

    3. Hello,

      I have a friend that is xxxl maybe xxxxl, so with the comment above with the battery placement due to cable length, on a guy of this size is that an issue? I’ve found that the vest looks like the best way to hide the vad, so I hope you can help with this concern. He’s really gonna be self conscious for a while! If it doesn’t work for him can we get a refund?

      Thanks in advance,

      1. Hi Chuck, I don’t expect the cable length to be a problem as we have shipped larger ones with no problems. Exchanges and refunds are easy and no problem. Our goal is to help, so if this product doesn’t work, we have several others that conceal and protect the LVAD.
