How to Choose a PFD Life Jacket?
WHAT IS A PFD? WHY HAVE ONE?
INCREDIBLE FUN WITH THE RIGHT LEVEL OF SAFETY
Water is incredibly fun to be around but it can be dangerous. A personal flotation device unlocks a whole new world of fun experiences, allowing you to do them safely. Not only is it sensible, it is also the law to be suitably protected when on the water.
Check your local state regulations for what type, where and when PFD’s must be worn.
Do try them on and check they fit. Then try to do the actions you will be doing for your chosen sport to check for potential rubbing or chaffing. e.g. Sit in one of our kayaks and check you can paddle comfortably.
