Perfect light weight with the perfect protection.

I purchased this vest for several reasons. The light weight, highest safety vest, the pouch for my water bladder, and the comfort. I am an outrigger canoe paddler in the ocean so safety is key! The colors are bright so I can be seen by boaters and others on the water!

Comfortable even for a n00b

I’m just learning to remount my surfski in open water. This pfd fit perfectly and doesn’t ride up. It gives me peace of mind as I’m still learning. Looking forward to getting further out.

Fit Tips

If one of your body measurements is in between two sizes, order the smaller size for a tighter fit or the larger size for a looser fit. If your body measurements for hips and waist correspond to two different suggested sizes, order the one indicated by your hip measurement.

How To Measure

WAIST: Measure around the narrowest part (typically where your body bends side to side), keeping the tape horizontal.
HIPS: Measure around the widest part of your hips, keeping the tape horizontal.
CHEST: Measure the fullest area of your chest. Stand up straight and breath normally.
