Palm Riff PFD

Hit the river, or throw down some freestyle runs with the comfortable and secure Riff PFD keeping you safe on the water. Offering plenty of buoyancy with a low-profile 'flex-fit' wrap around design that sits snug to the body with the easy adjustment of the multiple straps. You can concentrate on putting in the paddle strokes without hinderance from your PFD! The 3D anti-ride waistbelt adjustement keeps this PFD nailed in position so you can rely on it if you take a swim. Neoprene-line shoulder straps offers good comfort for the active paddler, even if you are not wearing a cag in the warmer months.

The large clamshell utility pocket on the front of the Riff is perfect for holding a Snake Sling and other small safety essentials. The pocket has an inner velcro pocket to keep items really secure if needed. There is also a concealed pocket for holding a safety knife on the front of the Riff so you can get quick access when needed, even one-handed. A further gear lash point in located on the PFD for adding even more accessories. Side entry is via clip buckles - simply clip yourself in, adjust up the straps and away you go. Just unclip when it's time to pack away and the adjustment is pre-set for the next time!

A great option for anyone paddling on moving water, from the river runner to the freestyler and surfer.
