Wesley Eadswrote a review of NRS Zen Type V Personal Flotation Device on September 18, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is a great no frills Type V PFD. I used it for 2 seasons of guiding on the New and Gauley in WV and have since used it as a kayak vest. If you are looking for a good vest for both rafting and kayaking I would say that this is one of the better ones out there. However, it feels better in the kayak than it does in the raft. Getting in and out of the raft it feels kind of like having a turtle shell on your belly. In the kayak it is out of the way enough to not really notice it. Also the updated clam shell design is a great addition to this timeless vest.
I am 6'2 175 and I picked up the L/XL and it fit well.
