Product title: NRS Matik Inflatable Lifejacket (PFD)
SKU: ELJ_NSMATIK-Charcoal-Universal

The NRS Matik Inflatable Lifejacket (PFD) resembles a traditional lifevest with the compact convenience of an inflatable. An alternative to waist-belted PFDs, the lightweight, low-profile Matik gives you on-demand flotation that doesn't get in your way stand-up paddling, fishing or wading.

  • This lightweight self-inflating PFD provides 22.5 lbs. of flotation
  • Folds compactly into a low-profile horse-collar style jacket
  • Secures with a waist buckle when deflated
  • Integrated bladder instantly inflates with CO2 gas pressure when immersed in water
  • Zippered pocket w/ internal tether for keys or a whistle
  • Two D-Ring attachment points
  • Manual backup cord, mouth inflation valve, reflective accents and two attachment points
  • Includes one-time-use CO2 cartridge & re-packing instructions
  • Replacement CO2 Re-Arming Kits are sold separately
  • Only meets USCG Type III requirements when worn

Due to shipping restrictions, the CO2 cylinder that comes with this lifejacket can only be shipped via Ground services. While the jacket can be expedited, no expedited shipping options are available for the cylinder. Also, the CO2 cylinder cannot be shipped to Alaska, Hawaii or international destinations.

Warning This product can expose you to Di(2 - ethylhexyl)phthalate(DEHP), which is known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Please Note - An inflatable 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 must be wearing the deflated collar for it to qualify as a required flotation device.

CO2 cartridges are one-time-use only. It’s good practice to keep an extra on hand to re-arm the PFD after each inflation.
