Focused on recreationalists who want a PFD with the versatility of a knife made by the Swiss.

Stohlquist updated the recreational, do-it-all Trekker Life Jacket with its unique Wrapture design that curves this vest around your chest and core for ultimate comfort. Where other vests feel boxy and interfere with the seatback on your sit-on-top or recreational touring boat, the Trekker PFD feels smooth-as-silk. Plenty of adjustability, roomy front pockets, and cool mesh on the backside make this vest a go-to choice for boaters who want the best balance of comfort and safety.

  • Wrapture shaped-torso design matches the natural curvature of your chest and core so you get the most comfortable fit the moment you pull on your PFD
  • Adjustable straps on the chest, shoulders, and sides provide the customization and low-profile fit you need for uninhibited paddling
  • Neoprene padding on the shoulders and lower back keep your salty skin from getting chafed by the straps
  • Front zipper yields easy on-off and quick cool-downs in flat water
  • Tough 500D Cordura nylon outer shell withstands abuse, while the softer 200D oxford liner takes it easy on bare skin
  • Open sides aid ventilation during hot summer tours around the jetty
  • Two zippered bellows pockets include drainage and stash a snack or waterproof camera
  • 3M reflective details on the front and back keep you in the sights of larger-craft captains in low light and fog
  • A four-way lash tab on the back shoulder for attaching a light or other accessory

life vest

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I really like all of the adjustments you can make it as tight as you like

how does this fit women?

how does this fit women?

The Stohlquist Trekker Personal Flotation Device is a unisex vest and would work for both men and women. However, the fit for a woman is not going to be ideal, and you will have to size down a little.

I realise this vest is on sale, and that makes it tempting, but I would also recommend looking at Stohlquist Cruiser Personal Flotation Device or the Stohlquist Flo Personal Flotation Device.


Great PFD

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I wore this on 5 day kayaking trip all day everyday without issue. It was comfortable and didn't ride up even after 8 or 9 hours on the river.


Stohlquist Trekker

    I got my jacket and it fits great. I like the pockets and the adjustable. My only complaint is that it is not so comfortable without a shirt on.
