Cheap? Don't know. It needs to be the correct fit for you. You will be in it the entire time you are out on your kayak, yes? VHF, knife,whistle are needed to be attached of carried on it, so some pockets are needed. Avoid too much bulky crap in pockets , it makes self rescue difficult. High backed seat? You might want a high backed rear flotation PFD, bright colour and reflective panel or piping might be a consideration too. Don't skimp on this item, you can keep it when you swap from kayak to kayak in the future. Go in and try them on when you purchase for yourself.
