Even though we have made this PFD 20% lighter, we have retained all the features that make this PFD the choice of Nike and Balance Bar/Vector AR teams, and 2005 C2C champs Richard Usher and Kristina Anglem.

The drink system holds a 2.5litre bladder and keeps the tube at the tip of your exhausted tongue. It is easy to get on (over your head) and fast to get off (side zip) and in between you will hardly notice you are wearing it. The bottle pocket on the front has a second tube guide so you can dine in style, electrolyte, fluid, electrolyte, fluid... ad infinitum. The "system X" adjustment system prevents the weight of the drink bladder from pulling the PFD backwards and choking you in the process... nice.

It comes equipped with a whistle and a handy dandy knife pocket with a lash tab ( mandatory gear on most races) as well as a strobe light clip point on the back. The piping is reflective and the mesh front pockets hold food, and plenty of it.

Floatation meets or exceeds USCG minimum 15.5lbs (depending on size)
Floatation exceeds NZS minimum of 5.4kgf (all sizes).
