Show Description

This rescue PFD was designed in collaboration with whitewater legends Erik and Dane Jackson. The same features that make it terrific for creeking, river running, and playboating translate well to touring. It’s low-profile but buoyant, and central panels follow you through your twistiest moves. Built to accept a quick-release tow attachment, electronics pocket, and rear strobe anchor to equip it for guides, trip leaders, and other advanced paddlers.
