    Details

    Perfect for paddling or floating along.

    Given how comfortable you'll find the NRS Vapor Personal Flotation Device, it will take a conscious effort not to wear this buoyant vest into a bar after your all-day paddling party. 200D nylon covers ultralight foam to give this PFD durability and float without weighing heavily on your body. Designed to accommodate a range of wild arm motions, this side-entry vest won't slow you down in the annual milk-jug raft race around the lake.
    Four side webbing adjustments and two adjustable shoulder straps give the Vapor a custom fit whether you're wearing only a swimsuit or bulked up with a rain coat. Stash your waterproof point n' shoot in the front zipped pocket to have proof that your homemade raft actually was above water for more than a few seconds. Defrost your digits by cramming your hands into the hand-warmer pouch while watching steam trails rise from the lake surface. A single lash tab is a convenient place for your pocket knife in case the on-water action gets a bit knotty.

    Great for Guides

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this to use as a whitewater raft guide and it worked great. Provided enough flotation while still being very low profile allowing for tons of movement. The zippered pouch was great for storing snacks like bars for trips down the river. Very easy to adjust and get it to fit perfectly.

    Great PFD

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Picked this up for river trips (mostly to avoid getting a ticket). But it's a great piece of gear. Very comfortable, easy to get on/off and adjust. The front pocket is super convenient for storing anything you need to have at the ready (like a flask).

    Oh, and it keeps you afloat, too.

    Safety First

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

    My wife and I use this on our paddle board for safety and so we don't get a ticket when out on the reservoirs. This PFD still allows for easy mobility when paddling and fits comfortably. According to sizing, we went with a S/M so it would fit my wife but I can still fit in the smaller size even though my chest measures out to be 41. I love the front pockets easy access to put some essentials or goodies in. Even though we have only used it a few times, the fabric and stitching seam like this PFD will hold up for quite some time.

    Great all purpose pfd

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Bought for use with a Wilderness System Tsunami 140, fit's very well. Adds a bit of insulation in the late fall as well. Also used sailing and tubing. Very comfortable!
