Buoyancy Aids & PFDs


Wearing a buoyancy aid (sometimes called a personal floatation device) is always recommended when canoeing or kayaking, whatever the environment or weather. As well as helping to keep you afloat in case of submersion, they also provide additional warmth. Please note that lifejackets, which provide buoyancy for the head as well as torso, are not the same thing as buoyancy aids. Buoyancy Aids come in various specifications at different prices ranges for different paddling disciplines. Take a look at our range by clicking on the relevant links below....
