Description

Don't leave shore without it.

More comfortable than an Alaskan cruise ship and almost as outfitted as a Coast Guard cutter, the Kokatat's OutFit Tour Personal Flotation Device rocks all the fit adjustments and safety options you need for extended paddles in open water. Stiff, bloated PFD's are a thing of the past, and the articulated and flexible foam and shell of the OutFit Tour is proof. Slide your arms through the wide openings, stash small essentials in the pockets, and point your boat towards the horizon line.
  • 500D Cordura outer and 200D nylon inner shell create a highly abrasion-resistant and durable vest that will keep you safe season after season
  • GAIA PVC-free foam panels provide all the flotation you need to keep your head above water when it matters, making this vest USCG- and Transport Canada-approved
  • Padded and adjustable shoulders use Hypalon grip panels to rest on your shoulders without sliding or rubbing
  • Large arm and neck openings offer ample range of motion without sacrificing vital flotation
  • Fit note: Kokatat shaped this PFD specifically to have a little extra room in the shoulders for more broad-shouldered paddlers
  • Stretch mesh side panels are fully adjustable and create a comfortable fit around the abdomen and core
  • SOLAS reflective taping on front and back keep you visible to boat lights at dusk or dawn
  • Lash tabs on the front and back provide a point of attachment for a strobe or other signaling device

PFD love

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is seriously the best PFD I have ever owned. Fit is awesome and customizable with the shoulder and side adjustable straps. The double-layer front pockets allow for easy access to your storage items, i.e. phone/camera/sustainables. Very comfy and not constrictive to paddling movements. Love this PFD!

Great jacket for small paddlers!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have owned several jackets over the years and this one remains among the favorites. I am a smaller paddler, my chest is 28" so it's hard to find a jacket that fits. I got this in the smallest size available a few years back and cinched down tight, it's a good fit (might be worth double checking if the sizing has changed within the last few years). This jacket is simple, comfortable, and low profile if you're rowing (not sure about kayaking). The knife holder is in a good spot that's out of the way as well. Kokatat never disappoints.

I'd like to see a video of someone actually using the jacket while paddling in a kayak or canoe.

I made the right choice with Kokatat

This is my first personal PFD and I am stoked with the purchase. I originally bought it for sailing, then used it for rafting and now have adapted it to river kayaking. It has worked for all occasions very well. What I like about this vest the most is every pocket has a little 'D' ring to attach anything to it. Such as keys, a knife or what ever you would like to stay in your vest. Another thing I like about this PFD is the main pocket zippers arch over and are faced down so they don't un-zip during an active day.

One thing I haven't liked about it is that when I am rolling in a kayak the buckle on the front pocket has come unclipped and I lost my cheap but useful watch.... luckily they are cheap at K-Mart.

It's comfy and I am secure in it....those are the most important to me.

A great PFD gets better...

Like Gnarlydog I've spent the last several years wearing an MsFit Tour. That vest treated me very well but I like this OutFit Tour even better. The forward pocket placement and the larger arm openings offer excellent mobility and comfort. The slightly longer body does not hamper me in any way as compared to the MsFit. The OutFit Tour better distributes the weight of the Kokatat hydration system I wear during the heat season, an aspect this old man's back appreciates.

The new pocket design is sweet, excellent cargo space and easy access. The new hood over the chest lash tab is another super touch that shows Kokatat is continually looking for ways to improve their equipment and they're listening to those who use these vests in the real world.

Give your new Kokatat PFD a nice liberal dose of 303 fabric care before you put it into service and then follow up at intervals appropriate to your use and region. Your vest will last a long time and look great.

Thanks to Backcountry and Kokatat for great products and service.

second Kokatat PFD

I went back to Kokatat after 6 years of using/wearing out the Kokatat MsFit. The OutFit Tour has the pockets a bit more forward on the chest giving me better clearance when paddling. I like the new recess-pocket for the knife on the left shoulder so the kinfe sheet won't stick out anymore like on my old MsFit. The pockets are well placed and I can acess my compact camera with ease. The shoulder straps are outstanding having the webbing tuck away nicely and not having the excess flopping around.The workmanship is superb, something that I expect from Kokatat anyway.

The best pfd I've ever owned! I'm a jet ski guy that has converted to kayaking. So I've owned a fair share of pfd's And this bad boy is my favorite. Used it about 6 times, comfortable to wear, feels great and rugged! I really like kokatat!
