This no-frills, front-zip PFD provides full-range arm and shoulder movement. Two adjustable shoulder- and side-cinch straps let us customize the fit to accommodate everyone from mid-size adults to skinny teens.
Breathable mesh siding kept us cool, and the offset shoulder buckle didn’t rub against the gunwale when we were portaging canoes. Two pleated zip pockets (with drain holes) hold sunscreen or snacks.
