- BCBexley C.Verified ReviewerReviewingNRS Chinook Fishing LIfejacket (PFD)I recommend this productRated 5 stars1 month agoBest fit, comfort, don’t realize you’re wearing a pfd
Best fitting pfd, period! Mesh in lower back is awesome, prevents pfd from riding up while in kayak or pack boat. Very comfortable, full range of paddling motion. Don’t even know you’re wearing a pfd!

This is my first pfd. Choose this one because it is very popular for kayak fishing. Never tried in real conditions yet but it Fits well, a lot of storage, pockets. Price was low and fast delivery.
I am very happy of my purchase.
- MMattVerified BuyerReviewingNRS Chinook Fishing Kayak Lifejacket (PFD) (Closeout)I recommend this productRated 5 stars1 year agoSuperior comfort and very adjustable PFD
Very comfortable , easily adjustable, floatation foam is more flexible than most other PFDs of this kind. Doesn't feel like you're wearing nylon wrapped hard styrofoam blocks. The pockets are well placed and well designed for phone, small fly boxes, leaders, tippet spools and other small items. Frankly the most comfotable PFD I've ever owned and I'm not easy to fit....at 250lbs with a (ahem) BIG BELLY, the adjustment straps are easily customizable to your body shape.
I would add one design change.....I'd pay a few bucks more for one of the large pockets to be waterproof with a waterproof zipper. Highly recommended.

Paddling life jackets have come a long way in recent years. I wear a PFD for hundreds of hours a year. We do not leave the dock without wearing a PFD. My kids do not get on the dock without one. I have been wearing an inflatable PFD for the last several years, but will probably go back to one of these. The NRS Chinook is comfortable, and has enough pockets to hold lures for kayak fishing. I fish out of a Stealth Profisha, so that is not a big deal, but it is nice to be organized. The Chinook has a mesh back, and the flotation is higher. This may or not interfere with a lawn chair type seat. No issue for me on a Stealth. My point is that these PFDs should not be overlooked for use on larger boats where a light comfortable PFD will get worn more. Just keep in mind that if it is not on you, the Coast Guard will not count it as a life jacket. Oh yeah, the angle and colors are nice blah, blah, blah. Own good PFD's and wear them. They WILL save your life. Boats go down fast, and people do not float!
