Astral Linda Personal Flotation Device - Women's Astral Linda Personal Flotation Device - Women's
You've gained some paddling confidence but your decades-old PFD makes moving painful. Ditch the ancient, army-green vest in favor of the Astral Buoyancy Women's Linda Personal Flotation Device. Large arm holes leave ample room to brandish your paddle from any angle, and the back rises high enough to save your scapulae from high-backed kayak seats. This buoyant baby is specifically engineered to keep your XX silhouette comfortable whether you're SUP-ing 'round the pond or taking your recreational 'yak out for an all-day paddle n' picnic. This fun-loving USCG-certified PFD provides 16 pounds of float and prefers touring lake caves in a canoe or a leisurely afternoon paddle in a 'yak (look elsewhere for a PFD for whitewater). Rugged 200D nylon won't shirk from wayward paddles or touchy-feely tree limbs. The inner mesh lining isn't meek when it comes to keeping you cool. A skinny strip of mesh runs midway down the center of your back to give paddle-produced perspiration an obvious escape route while letting fresh air swirl around your shoulder blades. The women-specific design takes articulated foam panels and carefully contours them around your torso for maximum comfort without sacrificing safety. Polypro webbing at the shoulders and sides lets you customize the fit with a few simple tugs. Shaped for a lady but buoyant enough for a man, the adjustable straps let the Linda fit a wide range of body types easily, safely, and comfortably. Two large pleated pockets easily hold your camera, lip balm, and a baggie of snacks (which you don't have to share).

Kokatat Maximus Personal Flotation Device Kokatat Maximus Personal Flotation Device
Kokatat made the Maximus Personal Flotation Device for whitewater boaters and aggressive sea kayakers who prefer to hit the water with the extra protection of a full-size vest. The type-three Maximus puts all the webbing adjustments up front where they're easy to reach, while wide neoprene shoulder panels and a free-floating front flotation panel give you the freedom of movement required to boof, cartwheel, loop, and carve the face of ocean waves without feeling held back. In terms of added features, the Maximus is a step down from the Prime (a vest designed specifically for whitewater rescuers), but offers the same adjustable fit, side-entry closure, and full-size protection at a lower price tag.

Kokatat's internal grip panel and offset front-entry design create a snug fit that won't ride up when you're in the water.

Stohlquist EBB Personal Flotation Device Stohlquist EBB Personal Flotation Device
Pushing off shore into a steady river flow evokes a sense of calm that can only be retained by paddling further downstream. A PFD that collides with the back of your kayak seat, inches slowly up to your chin whether you're in the water or not, and rubs the under-side of your elbows raw after every stroke, however, removes that peacefulness and replaces it with frustration and annoyance. So, instead of paddling through the pain, zip up the Stohlquist EBB Personal Flotation Device for a comfortable, safe, and tranquil trip on the water.The flotation foam sits higher up on the back in order to accommodate kayak back rest and lumbar supports. Plus, with eight points of adjustments, the EBB offers a customizable fit that sits securely around your torso without rising up. Wide arm holes on either side leave room for big and small paddle strokes without rubbing or irritating your skin, while a neoprene padded waistband adds a soft touch when you're wearing a bathing suit. And an interior mesh lining helps to pull sweat away from the body on hot, summer days.

Stohlquist Flo Personal Flotation Device - Women's Stohlquist Flo Personal Flotation Device - Women's

Cups sculpted into the jacket's interior foam allows for you to cinch down all of the eight adjustment points without feeling uncomfortably tight. Wide arm holes leave room for big and small paddle strokes without rubbing or irritating your skin and a neoprene padded waistband adds a soft touch when you're wearing a bathing suit top or a sports bra. The Flo's flotation foam sits higher up on the back in order to accommodate kayak seats and lumbar supports. And an interior mesh lining helps to pull sweat away from the body on hot, summer days.
