Womens BetSEA Kayak Lifejacket
|Stohlquist Women's BetSEA Kayak Lifejacket - Only a woman understands what she wants in a kayak PFD, and that’s exactly what you get with the Stohlquist women’s BetSEA Kayaking PFD. This women's-specific lifejacket is cut short and small so it's not in the way when you move. The ergonomic Wrapture shaped torso utilizes hand-beveled articulated foam and Princess seams to provide a close, low-profile contoured feminine fit. Built-in contoured cups wrap rather than crush for optimal comfort. Extra-wide armholes maximize mobility, and a shortened back does not hinder movement or rub against your backrest. The cross-chest cinch harness keeps the flotation low on the torso, eliminating ride-up without restriction. With adjustable shoulder straps and a waist webbing waist belt you can further customize the fit of the BetSEA Kayak PFD. The BetSEA has a subtle feeling, like it isn't even there. If you truly want to become one with your PFD, the Stohlquist women’s BetSEA kayak lifejacket is the way to go!
Sizing for the Stohlquist BetSEA Kayak Lifejacket PFD:
This is a favorite among our female cusotmers. The fit is superb. Stohlquist has done their homework and has catered this design for the woman paddler.
This is a great PFD/life jacket for women with a "more than average" chest. I bought the Stohlquist BetSEA before I'd bought a kayak! The rental PFDs were so very uncomfortable! The shoulders are stretchy w/ adjustment straps to take up slack, if any, so the PFD sits properly on torso, not lifted off shoulders. Along with a waist strap and under arm strap to adjust circumference of PFD, there's a "cross chest" strap from mid back to upper chest that also helps hold the PFD in the correct place on a woman’s body. I've progressed from beginner to intermediate kayaker wearing this vest. I kayak on lakes and ponds, slow rivers (no bumps or whitewater) and some ocean/bay (not yet surfing). The armholes are cut out a bit and rarely chafe me, so Stohlquist has figured out that some well-endowed women have narrow rib cages. They say it's short and doesn't interfere w/ the back deck - as I don't (yet) have a roll, I can't comment on that. All in all, this is a great (umm, maybe ONLY) PFD for the more than averagely endowed woman kayaker/boater. (Other Mfrs attempts at women's models did not accommodate my chest.) Thanks Stohlquist!
