    Thoughtful design for a trouble-free float.

    The Stohlquist EBB Personal Flotation Device's price point might suggest that it's solely for beginner and recreational paddlers. But with thoughtful features like Stohlquist's innovative cinch-strap system and loads of mesh for enhanced breathability and comfort, the EBB makes a great addition to any paddler's kit.

    • Lightweight design uses PE foam for flotation, an outer shell of 420D nylon ripstop, and an inner liner of 210D material
    • The mesh lower back area further reduces weight and won't interfere with your boat's lumbar support
    • Tightening the Stohlquist upper cinch strap lowers the PFD's front, raises its back, and draws the foam panels closer to your body for a supremely comfortable fit
    • Padded shoulder straps enhance comfort
    • Front pockets stash extra calories, river maps, and a compass with ease
    • Bottom strap made from neoprene so it won't dig into your skin
    • Item #STO0038

    works great

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I wear this every time I'm in my canoe. Being out solo means being a little more careful - flat or moving water I wear this PFD. Much more comfortable and greater freedom of movement than my rescue PFD means that I actually wear it instead of in the bottom of my boat.

    Seems okay, but...

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Haven't actually tested it, but it fits well and looks good. I do wish it had a clip/buckle in the front so that it could be unzipped for more airflow while still be slightly secured in the front. What I am more concerned about is that the manufacture date of the Ebb pfd I just purchased was 3 years ago. I don't know how long these last, but I imagine the materials break down over time... so buying a brand new 3 year old pfd just seems kind of sucky.

    Got it for the pockets

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I'm 5'10" ~140lbs; Picked up an "Adult Men's S/M" which fits well. There are about 10 points of adjustment, so the fit can be easily modified to your liking. The two chest pockets are handy for a snack, multi-tool, keys, etc. One pocket has an elastic strap which I use to secure keys. Zipper pull seems a little flimsy, but could attach a metal ring in its place. I use it for ocean kayaking and have done several week long trips of all-day paddling without any issues. Overall, well built, non-constricting, and well fitting.
