One of our most popular PFDs, now offered in Graded Sizing® for the ultimate fit. The higher mesh back flotation fits more comfortably above the tall seat backs found in today’s recreational and touring kayaks.
Feel & Fit
Harmonized (US Coast Guard & Transport Canada) Approval
Certified for use in both the US (by The US Coast Guard) and Canada (by Transport Canada). You do not need to select a certification. The life vest is dual certified for both countries.
Stohlquist's Graded Sizing offers the best fit, and lowest footprint possible, for the widest range of body types. We have fine tuned each individual size, and sculpted the foam footprint and foam thickness to provide a better fitting, and more comfortable PFD for people of all sizes. This allows us to fit young, smaller framed paddlers up to larger adults in the same style vest, while offering identical mobility and a low-profile fit across the size range.
Cross-Chest Cinch for Zero Ride-Up
The innovative Cross-Chest Cinch harness, found only on Stohlquist PFDs, offers the most unique fit of any PFD, by keeping the vest down & in place, to eliminate ride-up. The "cinch" prevents and eliminates chafing on your chin and underarms caused by annoying vest ride-up.
Breathability and Mobility
Open sides, with adjustable mesh shoulders & back panels for maximum ventilation. The higher mesh-back design offers increased clearance for tall seat backs.
Two large, front bellows pockets with snap closure and slanted opening. They also work perfectly as a beverage holder.
8 Points of Adjustment
Customize your straps with eight points of adjustment, offering a secure & personalized fit.
