You wouldn't put just any life jacket over your torso, so NRS made sure to give the CVest Type III PFD a large, easy-to-use front zipper and multiple adjustments points to sway your decision. Large front pockets with smaller zippered stash compartments on the front as well as a designated radio pouch at the chest makes the CVest Type III PFD the ideal choice for guides or photo and videographers.
  • Mesh lower back panel offers added breathability for those who prefer high seat backs or spend long hours in the cockpit
  • Eight adjustment points allow you to get a precise fit for both comfort and security
  • Six pockets offer easy-access to smaller items you can paddle without
  • Knife attachment for safety purposes

Great Kayak PFD

This was my first PFD, and it was perfect for kayaking or rafting. I suggest it for more if you are going to be in a cockpit with how the back is made. Has lots of pockets. Overall was a great pfd. The only thing I had a problem with was the zipper. I feel this is a common occurrence with front zippers is that sometimes its hard to start them. other than that, its great

Great PFD

My old Stolquist PFD was getting pretty faded and the pockets were ripping. I was looking for a replacement that would be more comfortable, more visible, and carry all the equipment I need to feel safe while paddling in more exposed water. This PFD is great! My iCom waterproof VHF radio fits perfectly in the radio pocket. I keep a ACR ResQLink in the left pocket, which can be secured to an internal attachment point.

The small right sided pocket is perfect for earplugs / nose plugs to use for practice rolling. A rescue knife attaches securely on the left, and an emergency light secure to the shoulder strap on the back.

My only gripe with the jacket is that it is not compatible with the NRS hydration pack. I bought it from a local retailer, and when I brought it back they said I couldn't return it because it had been used!

Does this pfd have lash point inside the pockets, so items like a VHF radio can be tethered to eliminate loss?

There is a lash point inside the left zipper pocket. I use it to secure my ACR ResQLink, which fits easily within the pocket. My iCom VHF radio fits perfectly within the velcro enclosure of the radio pocket.
