LIFE VESTS AND PFD'S

Life Vests or Personal flotation devices (PFDs) are a must-have at all times when paddling and are generally required by law. 

50N BUOYANCY AIDS (personal flotation devices – PFD’s) are suitable for people who are competent swimmers and are for inland waterways and protected coastal waters. They are mainly used for various watersports such as dinghy sailing, water skiing, jet skiing and kayaking.

There are different designs for different watersport activities. Paddling PFD’s are generally shorter in body length with larger arm holes.

100N LIFE JACKETS are best for water-users, either swimmers or non-swimmers on inland waterways and moderate coastal waters.  They offer a brightly coloured jacket for visibility, a neck colar to support the head and to assist in keeping the face out the water. 

They also have a crotch strap as standard with all sizes and we advise wearing them as they help to ensure the Lifejacket is correctly fitting.
