Best PFD Evah! (On the left)
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
My Willis PFD has seen 180+ river days in the last two seasons, and she's still going strong! I cannot say enough good things about this PFD. The design is perfect-- side entry buckles are sturdy, unobtrusive, and far superior to a center zip, which can get snagged and pulled down just when you need the jacket the most. The rib padding does take a minute to get used to if you're accustomed to a lower-profile jacket like the NRS Ninja... but I could never go back! That extra protection is AMAZING for whitewater-- nothing worse than bruised and banged up ribs in a Class V swim!
