    Stohlquist Descent Kayak Rescue Lifejacket - Whether it's a first descent or the 100th run on your favorite river, Stohlquist's new Descent Rescue Kayak Lifejacket is the kayaker's choice for high-performance rescue vests. The body-wrapping, ergonomically articulated WRAPTURE shaped torso combines with the cross-chest cinch harness adjustment and self-tensioning shoulders for a balanced and incredibly comfortable fit. Gripp-Loc interior non-slip panels mean zero ride-up, and multiple adjustment points further customize the fit. Free-floating suspended shoulder straps stretch as you move. Contoured and padded for comfort, the Nail Cloth textured surface with stiffeners adds protection and makes portaging easier. Multiple pockets allow you to carry needed essentials and the self expanding high capacity main pocket is perfect for stashing a throw rope. The included quick release rescue harness allows for strong swimmer and equipment retrievals and there's even a quick release accessory tab for a tow tether with an optional anchor positioning. Finishing off the rescue detailing, you'll find several stainless steel loop anchor points that are available for accessory attachments, like a crotch harness. The low cut, offset front zipper makes entry and exit simple, and reflective accents help keep you visible in low light. With the Descent Rescue Lifejacket you'll be comfortable and ready for the river!

    I just used one of these at a demo over the weekend. Excellent fit. The cinch system and other adjustments allowed for a great fit, much better than my current PFD. The pockets are also nice, and allow for easy access to a throw rope and tow tether set-up.

    At first glance, this lifejacket would appear to be bulky. The image is very misleading. When I put on this jacket it was body hugging and the foam contoured nicely like a PFD that I've owned for years. Then I sat in my boat. In two seconds I didn't even know I was wearing the thing. I always thought you needed a mesh backed jacket to be comfortable in a kayak but I found this PFD to be extremely comfortable. I didn't feel like I was arching off the seat at all. I would highly recommend this lifejacket to everyone!
