Vaikobi Vest Purchase

Works perfect. I am an outrigger/marathon canoe paddler and thought the broader upper chest flotation would be felt when paddling but that was not the case, I didn't notice it at all. I also like the fact that it is thinner that the more condensed thicker NRS Ninja I have worn over the years.

Comfortable PFD with room to move

I use this pfd on both Dragon boats & OC1. The fit is comfortable and find very little restriction to my paddling. The addition of the water bladder is also great for longer paddles.

VXP Race PFD is Great!

This pfd is Comfortable and has the convenience of pockets for snacks, keys, and a Hydration Bladder. All of which contributes to longer 'play time' on the water ! I added a Leg leash after receiving this order and Adrienne had it on its way to me that day - Great Service. Thank you

Comfortable PFD (VXP Race PFD)

This is a great PFD. It is comfortable to wear and allows full movement of the arms. I use it for stand up paddle boarding. The front pocket is easy to access and is useful to carry a few things (phone, snack bars).
