Palm Nevis

Designed by Barney Caulfield the Palm Nevis brings together the latest features from UCLan's Research to create a comfortable and reliable PFD for white water paddlers. The Delta Fit adjustment system comprises two wings that wrap around your ribs to reduce pressure on your abdomen, this provides a comfortable snug fit while also helping you to breathe and increasing mobility. This unique design was field tested extensively by Bren Orton before release to ensure it has the outstanding performance Palm wanted to deliver.

For maximum safety the shoulder straps and waist webbing through the Nevis PFD produce a world first Piggyback adjustable quick release chest harness. This new design, with Easy Glide straps means that it can be fitted in 5 quick and easy steps and releasing the Harness doesn't affect the fit of your PFD. Detail like the aircraft grade load tested buckles mean this is a PFD you can rely on.

The storage on the Palm Nevis has been maximised with a large Clamshell utility draw pocket with internal fittings to segment your gear. It also has two Velcro stash pockets and a dual entry zipped tunnel pocket. There are various attachment D-rings, internal pockets, knife sleeve and webbing clip-in points so you can organise all your equipment for easy access.

The Palm Nevis has all you need for white water kayaking, rafting, coaching and canoeing, it would also be suitable for sea-kayaking rockhoppers.
