    Excellent full floatation pfd! Very

    Excellent full floatation pfd! Very comfortable oaring my raft, paddling my river SUP, or surfing in my play boat. Highly recommend for an all-around great vest that can do it all.

    I started with the original version of this PFD about 6 years ago, and just recently upgraded to the newest version. I am THRILLED with the updates. The pocket is massive and easy to organize. Inside I keep a folding knife, a full pin kit, and Snickers bar. The ripstop fabric is lightweight, super durable and dries relatively quickly. Overall, this PFD is at least 30% lighter than the earlier versions. The range of motion, and the comfort of the PFD is fantastic. There are a lot of adjustment points, so I can really get my preferred fit. The hand warmer pocket is the best addition to PFDs since flotation.

    Great redesign- better fitting for short people.

    I am short torsoed, so the original felt like it was choking me. The upper portion of the original, under the chin, was higher and thicker. The new one rides lower and the foam is more tapered. Much more comfortable, great redesign.

    Whitewater kayak pfd

    This pfd is made for whitewater kayaking. It has a recovery ring and a secure strap at the bottom.

    Well made with a lot of places to adjust for fit.

    It allows for plenty of movement.
