Stohlquist Tow Motion Kayak Lifejacket - The Tow Motion is the Swiss army knife of PFDs. It offers the most comfortable fit available, and is configured in a way to accommodate the need for maximum storage capability and additional places to put things. The Tow Motion kayak vest comes with a tow belt allowing one to easily transform this jacket in a rescue vest. Hand-shaped foam elements minimize the vest's profile, and the rugged Cordura shell will provide years of durability. A cross-chest cinch adjustment eliminates ride-up and fits the vest lower on the torso for full mobility, more effective buoyancy and additional comfort. The shorter, lower back will not hinder your movements or rub against your boats backrest. Stretchy adjustable neoprene shoulders offer great comfort. Roomy pockets offer plenty of storage room for radios, safety essentials and food. Strobe lash tabs and 3M reflective trim on both front and back increase visibility in low-light conditions. The Tow Motion adds functionality and convenience for any type of paddling.


Chest 33 - 39" 40 - 46" 46 - 54"

Special Offer - FREE 1.5" Rescue Tow Belt and stainless steel ring included with the Tow Motion Kayak Lifejacket ($19.95 value).

We highly recommend an important accessory with this Lifejacket. The Re-Traxt 12' Tow Tether attaches to the tow belt to complete the rescue towing system.

    This is a great-fitting PFD! I wore mine for the first time on a 5-day trip last fall, and hardly noticed I had it on. Almost a year later it's still going strong. The Cinch system makes it easy to adjust and keep in place. There were also plenty of pockets for my radio, energy bar, and other key goodies. It may not be as trendy as some other jackets, but it works just fine.

    for three yrs i've been looking for a new paddling pfd. i've looked high and low. the search is over people, the search is over. this is one of the best pfds on the market in the world of paddling. its incredibly lightweight. it fits like a glove. it has more adjustment points than any i've seen before. it has three pockets on the front that can hold everything you could want from safety gear like a whistle, radio, flares, gps, food, camera, etc. a semi hardshelled zippered pocket is perfect for a small radio or gps and probably provides some crush protection. it's also got a great tow belt for towing the wearer in or out of a boat. the pfd also has two 4-way lash tabs - one on the front and one on the backif you're looking for a highly technical paddling pfd that is lightweight and fits like a glove, the search is over. buy this one!

    As a lifeguard and boating instructor at summer camps my personal PFD is arguably the most important piece of equipment I being to my job, and I have no complaints about this one. It's been my only source of flotation down a river only 6" deep - it got plenty banged up, but never ripped, even after two years of punishment. The range of motion is incredible, except for the obvious drag factor, I can still swim at full power if the situation calls for it. It's adequately adjustable, at least within its size; you can't make a medium fit someone who needs a large, for example.
