The fits-like-a-dream, go-anywhere PFD.

Stohlquist melded the comfort of an everyday PFD with the slim lines of a more low-profile, athletic-style design in order to create the DRIFTer Personal Flotation Device. Hand-carved float panels sit low and wrap around the chest with a cleverly-shaped curve that gives this vest a hardly-there feel. Straps at the shoulders, sides, and chest allow plenty of adjustability, and the extra-wide armholes let you dip your paddle with ease whether you're in the boat everyday or only on the weekends.

  • Ergonomic Wrapture torso shape and hand-beveled foam match the fit of this vest to hug your core with a curve rather than feeling like a brick on your chest and back
  • A pair of cinching buckles at the side create the Cross-Chest cinch system which eliminates ride-up when you're paddling
  • Extra-wide armholes offer maximum mobility and range of motion
  • Adjustable shoulder straps and ventilated shoulder and lumbar pads add to overall comfort
  • Stohlquist paid attention to small details with a key bungee, accessory lash tabs, reflective trim front and back, and lined hand-warmer pockets

Great Lifejacket

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I wear this lifejacket everyday in the summer for my job and often completely forget I have it on. You can adjust it perfectly and it molds to your body. I keep all the things I need for sailing in the pockets- knife, rope, etc. Overall very happy with this purchase.


Like it a lot

    I really like the profile on this. Had to wear it all day floating the Green River for fishing for two days. Doesn't inhibit movement for casting or rowing, you forget you have it on. The pockets up front are nice, hold a few little items that you might want to have on you at all times. Fleece hand pockets are a nice touch as well.


    not bad for a PFD

      I bought this jacket for my husband for our last river trip, and he raves about it. it has nice fleece lined front pockets, plus zip up pocket on top of that for stowing away a koozie or two; two, count them, two slides for river knives (can't have too many of those). and very versitile adjustibility around the chest, shoulders, and waist.

      I'm looking for a pfd with pockets for an extended wilderness canoe trip. wanting to carry gps, lighter, space blanket, etc in case of dump/loss of canoe in very remote situation. Does anyone have an opinion if this pfd fits the bill? it seems to.....

      It might. The NRS Chinook has more pockets, however. I have a space blanket, ADFG permits, Fenix flashlight, needlenose pliers and a CRKT knife that live in mine.
