Craning for a glimpse of gray crowned cranes from your canoe? Make sure your Extrasport Volksvest Personal Flotation Device is securely fasted around your body, lest you lean a little too far and end up in the water. The narrow chest foam won't interfere with your stealthy paddling as you creep towards the reeds, be it in your kayak or canoe. If you're stepping foot on a sailboat for your first knot-tying lesson, heading out for an early morning paddle with your trusty rod and reel, or touring sea caves via kayak, the Volksvest PFD stands ready for the trip.
Type III PFDs have nothing to do with the latest edition of the DSM or an imminent appointment to be fitted with your own white jacket. Instead, this categorization refers to the speed at which you may be rescued, and from what type of water the rescue will occur. Huh? Type III PFDs help you stay afloat if you've gone overboard in calm, placid waters, and your saviors are seconds away. If you prefer paddling with a triple shot of adrenaline, skip the Volksvest and find a more brawny life jacket.
Sturdy 200D ripstop nylon withstands the abuse of toting boats, rough ropes, and clambering over canoe gunwales. The anti-corrosive front zipper makes it easy to slip into this little number. YKK Vislon plastic buckles snap merrily along to give you a dependable fit every time. Side webbing adjusts for a secure fit every time, regardless of whether you're wearing a bikini top or fisherman's sweater.
