Introducing the new V3 Generation of Ocean Racing PFD's

We are excited to launch a new generation of the hugely popular Vaikobi Ocean Racing PFD- The V3 Ocean Racing PFD

The V3 Ocean Racing PFD features some new updates to increase comfort and performance including:

  • New super soft wicking liner for improved moisture management
  • Slightly larger front pockets to fit larger cell phones more easily
  • Larger hose guide tabs
  • Light grey side panels and mesh pockets

We have kept many of the existing design features which have made this PFD so popular, including our super soft, form fitting foam that bends around the body and our overall ultra lightweight construction.

If you are training or racing in the harbour or a few kilometres offshore in the ocean, the Vaikobi Ocean Racing PFD will not only make you feel lighter and more comfortable in the boat, but will also make you highly visible to those around you for when you want to be seen.

  • ISO 12402-5 (Equivalent to AS 4758 Type 2) 
  • Form Fitting Super Soft Foam
  • Two fully closable mesh pockets with lanyard
