    Real Review: Jobe Sports’ Youth Progress Neo Vest



    Upon retreating from both battles at Lexington and Concord, Britain’s conscription infantry noted that the revolting colonists were alarmingly over-sized compared to the average “red coat.” In fact, the average American colonist outweighed the typical English soldier by two dozen pounds and stood several inches taller. General George Washington was notably intimidating, standing a hair above 6’2″ and weighing slightly over 200 pounds (not to mention wearing a size 13 shoe), when considering most men capped at 5’6″.

    As a U.S. history fanboy, this tidbit of knowledge has been a bit appropriate as of late. And although the median weight ratios have swayed dramatically over the past 50 years, American vs. European sizing still needs some slightly better bridging. When ordering a new swathe of test product from Jobe Sports for 2015, we hoped to outfit our slightly taller-than-average 5-year-old a new Youth Progress Neo Vest. Our misreading of Jobe’s size chart resulting in a new Youth Progress Neo Vest for our year-and-a-half-year-old (not to mention a few other items requiring yours truly to shed some unwanted pounds to comfortably fit as well).
