Solid PFD

This is a great PFD. I purchased it because the space for the hydration bladder - I get a 2L to fit just fine, with some extra space to store my phone in a waterproof case and a few other small items. The front pockets are good sized too. I can fit a small flashlight and other items. The PFD also fits great - you forgot it’s on after awhile. Love it! Well worth the investment

Great product and amazing customer service

Very positive. It is light and fits well and easy to paddle in. I am short with a slightly stocky frame but I found the adjustments available on the vest easy to adjust to my figure and very comfortable. Your customer service team (Paula) was so helpful and helped me decide on the size and model. Her personal approach was very helpful and gave me added comfort in placing my order from far away. Great experience.

I love this PFD!

Very comfortable. Love the pockets. I bought this because my friend had one and highly recommended it. Easy to see from a very long distance, so it's great for paddling in areas with speed boats. Other paddlers ask me where I got it, and I’ve highly recommended it.

High viz, high comfort

It is comfortable. Easy to adjust the fit. A little bigger than I thought it would be but I don’t really even notice I have it on when paddling.
