Recreational Buoyancy Aids & PFDs
For all-round paddlesport and watersports use
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.
The Buoyancy Aids listed below are great for recreational paddling on sit-on-top kayaks, open canoes, sit-in touring kayaks and fishing kayaks. They feature a simple easy-to-use and comfortable design, with adjustable straps for a good fit. These Buoyancy Aids are also a great option for rental outlets, education groups and other commercial paddlesport uses.
