When everything starts to hit the fan, you need a PFD which can handle all the stress and strain of a swiftwater rescue situation. NRS Rapid Rescuer is hardy enough to be used by swiftwater rescue crews, but comfortable enough to be worn all day long. The eight adjustment points and universal sizing alone make this a really easy PFD to fit.
On the front of the Rapid Rescuer are two enormous pockets, secured with quick release buckles. In high pressure scenarios, you need to be able to access your equipment quickly and easily, and these pockets can be opened and closed one handed. They’re large enough to hold anything, from a GPS to a VHF radio.
Across the front of the Rapid Rescuer is the quick release belt, with carabiner attachment loop on the rear. This is an essential attribute for live bait style rescues, as well as many other swiftwater rescue techniques.
Three lash tabs on the front and one on the rear give you loads of attachment points for rescue knives, strobe lights, whistles, or anything else you need close at hand as part of your rescue set up. Long strips of reflective material keep you highly visible in low light.
The Rapid Rescuer is built to endure, with 500 denier Cordura material and reinforced straps with box stitched attachment points. It’s not a PFD designed for long days of paddling (NRS have many less sophisticated models), but for out-and-out rescue situations, where you want nothing but the best and strongest pieces of kit.
