Palm Kaikoura

Palm's Kaikoura is the benchmark in touring/sea kayaking PFDs. It is a front-zipped expedition-level touring PFD packed with plenty of features and storage space. Flex-formed foam technology means you barely notice you are wearing it and multiple reflective patches ensure you will be seen when needed. The Kaikoura features multiple storage pockets two of which can carry a VHF or PLB, the handwarming pockets are really useful on chilly days and the many adjustment points enable you to have the perfect fit. There is also a large rear pocket that will take a hydration bladder. Plastic clip in points feature an anti-snag design.
