The first time I wore my vaikobi PFD was paddling outrigger canoes 9& Canadas West Coast to an island where we did a hike through an old growth rainforest trail. Upon arriving at the island we realized we had lunch and snacks in our dry bags but no backpacks to carry them in. So we all left our PFDs on, stashed our lunches in our nice big vaikobi PFD pockets, and off we went. Bonus… we had water in our vaikobi hydration bladders in the back pockets of our PFDS so we didn’t even need to carry water bottles! Being a cold fall day in Canada, the PFDs also kept us nice and cozy without overheating us while we hiked. Then back to the boats, straight back on the water without changing clothes because we were still cozy and warm in our PFDs after hiking, and then carried on with more paddling. Couldn’t be happier! And lots of room in the front pocket to hold my 2-way handheld radio. Awesome, I’m stoked!
Very comfortable and happy with the hydration aspect of this PFD.
The item arrived exactly as described on the website. I am pleased with the quality, vibrant colour and fit.
Product seems good but quality control needs improvement. Some of the stitching has loose loops and will probably snag on something. For the price, this shouldn't happen.
This is an excellent PFD. It is light weight and very comfortable. I use it for kayaking and stand up boarding. I found the customer service to be excellent. I live in Nova Scotia Canada, and it was delivered to me within a week. Tremendous delivery service. I just recently purchased the water bladder to fit this PFD, and again, it arrived within the week and is effectively made to fit the back pouch of the PFD. I will definitely continue to purchase products from this company. I would highly recommend them for your paddling requirements in clothing and other accessories.
