Comfortable PFD


This is a comfortable PFD. the pockets are mostly useful with the exception of the strap that I would assume was designed for pliers by someone that has no idea what pliers look like.

Plenty of adjustability. I am 6'7" 325 and the XL/XXL fits me with room to spare.

Safety is the Key


I purchased this vest as a new kayaker and wanted to make sure I was comfortable while I was wearing this vest. This is the most comfortable vest I have ever worn, even in the very humid summer air of NW Pa. Made very well and feel very safe when I have it on.



Switched over to the NRS Chinook from a A/M inflatable PFD at the beginning of last year and haven’t wanted to go back to it. If you are concerned about it being to hot in the dead of summer, don’t be, it’s extremely breathable and comfortable. Another plus is the size of pockets and attachment points for phones, pliers, line cutters etc. Everything is right there! Definitely a great PFD

Best vest on the market.


I switched to this vest earlier in the year. I sometimes forget that I'm wearing it, it's that comfortable. The high back does not dig into my back or have any random pressure points when I sit back in my kayak seat. I love all of the pockets this vest offers. The clip at the bottom of the zipper is great as well. It helps the vest not ride up and needing to be pulled back down.
