This is one of those must have items we have had for a while on test.
Many people have used it and given us their opinions on it.

This pfd is of pure top quality it’s very comfortable to wear even on the longest days out is a zip up pfd which makes getting it on all the easier.

It has lots of pockets for all those bits and bobs we have and even has some flees lined front hand warming pockets.
Its made of a soft material so does not suffer from the stiffness some of the cheaper pfds suffer from with the fabric which can chafe. You wont realise you are wearing this pfd it’s so comfortable.

It has large cut away arm holes which make for an easy and comfortable paddle the material is breathable so you don’t get the wet patches we sometimes get on your back and chest from sweat.
The buckles and straps are of the highest quality and are easy to fasten even with the coldest of hands.
The clever use of colours can be seen from a long way out so in a rescue situation you would be easily spotted wearing it.

 

When in the water wearing it you are held quite high up which aids re-entry to your kayak and gives a lot of confidence to the wearer.

When wet no noticeable weight difference is felt by the wearer it won’t waterlog.
All in all this is an extremely well designed pfd of the highest quality which gives maximum comfort and support to the kayaker it is very well made and should last for many years . the tests are on going and this review will be added to in time if you would like to try it out yourself it will be at all the meets just let us know.
