  • Adjustable waist belt with side-release buckle lets you easily take the Zephyr on and off
  • The bag's clear window lets you check the inflation system for readiness
  • A CO2 cartridge is included with the Zephyr
  • A manual mouth valve backs up the CO2-powered inflator
  • US Coast Guard certified through testing by Underwriters Laboratories (UL)

NRS Zephyr Inflatable PFD Owner's Manual

The Zephyr PFD is certified by the US Coast Guard as a Type V PFD. However, it meets Coast Guard requirements for Type III PFDs when it is worn. In other words, you have to have the pouch secured around your waist for it to qualify as a required flotation device.

The Green Arming Pin breaks when you pull the inflation cord to inflate the Zephyr. The intact Arming Pin serves as a visual sign that there's a full CO2 cylinder available when needed.
