NRS cVest PFD
Just what I was looking for. It shipped quick and arrived in perfect condition. Can't wait to get on the river. The only thing missing was a Backcountry.com window sticker(s). Great service, as usual!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Awesome vest with great range of motion.
Pockets are little small.
Great vest, especially for the price
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I love being able to have all my essentials right on me at all times. while other people are digging around in their boats for snacks, keys, etc I'm already enjoying myself. While the MsFit is the standard for this style of PFD, this one is way cheaper and just has everything you want without feeling cheap. I love the mesh-back construction, especially living the south, where staying cool is key. The only thing I wish this PFD had shoulder pads on the straps, but that's only bothered me in high humidity weather. I look forward to using this PFD for a long time.
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
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.
