    Great product for waka ama paddlers

    Love my new Vaikobi life jacket. Some really great features - love the pocket on the back for my water bladder and the fact that it has loops to thread your drinking hoses through on both sides. This works perfectly for my bladder with two compartments so that I can take both water and energy drink on the waka. Great length - not too long so it sits just above the spray skirt making it nice and safe in the event of a capsize - nothing to get caught on to or loose tags to catch on anything. Great fit - I'm a big girl so am rapt it is nice and comfy for me. No rubbing or chaffing - wohoo! Love it.

    Highly recommend

    Got it as a gift for my friend! He said the jacket is very comfortable. He competes in races and the water pouch in back is very convenient especially with the mouth piece right there! He would highly recommend!! And the customer service if you aren’t sure about the product or have any issue is Phenomenal.

    Excellent quality

    I got this vest to use while kiteboarding. I works great. It allows my arm to have full range of motion while in the water. My only suggestion is that a loop strap be added to the bottom front so that, if it is used as a kiteboarding vest, it can be hooked to the harness' front hook.

    Fantastic Slim PFD

    This is a unique and awesome piece of gear. I paddleboard and love having the pouches in the front and the one in back for my water bladder. Very nice fit, never gets in the way.
