Stohlquist Fit Youth PFD is a high mobility vest for paddling, general boating and personal watercraft use. The sculpted front and back foam panels create a more appropriate fit for paddlesports, while still providing the ability to be used in other boating activities.
Sometimes, simplicity is key. Stohlquist Fit is a multi-use PFD designed for high mobility and ease of use. The large buckles on the front can be used with cold hands or small hands, and that lack of a zip can make this a far easier PFD to fit around layers or on larger users.
NRS Vista is a recreational PFD with the flair and freedom of a more pricey design. It focuses on comfort, safety and value for recreational and beginner kayakers. The affordable price also makes the Vista a perfect choice as a spare PFD.
Stohlquist Infant and Child PFDs are a perfect way to introduce your young paddler safely to the water. Dual support collars cradle the head to support them as they swim around, while a handy grab handle on the rear allows you to fish them out of the water when necessary.
The adjustable three-buckle entry system gives you easy access to this highly comfortable female-specific PFD. The adjustable shoulder straps let you position the Brook correctly on your torso so that the interior cups sit comfortably. The sculpted foam paneling is malleable, designed not only to fit your individual shape but to maximize movement while you paddle.
The market is saturated with no-frills recreational PFDs, but there are few which fit such a broad range of people as NRS Crew Universal.

Stohlquist Spinner Youth is a simple, high mobility vest for kayak fishing, paddling, general boating and personal watercraft use by younger paddlers. The scuplted front and back foam panels (similar to those in the adult version of the Spinner) create more mobility for angling and paddlesports.
