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.
Made for female anglers, the NRS Shenook PFD is all the high quality of the incredibly popular Chinook but with a comfortable female fit. The articulated plush panelling is perfect for the female form, so you can be as comfortable as possible throughout long days of fishing.
NRS Chinook is the world’s best selling angling PFD, and it’s easy to see why. A high back design is usually favored for kayak fishing, where the top end kayaks have highly evolved, supportive and comfortable seats. The mesh back is great for long days on the water too, not only allowing you to stay cool as you fish, but maximizing movement for both paddling and fishing.
Stohlquist Piseas is a budget-friendly fishing PFD. Despite its affordable price, it is a great combination of a comfortable PFD and a usable fishing vest. The half-back design with a mesh lower half and open sides give the Piseas plenty of ventilation, so you can keep cool on the water.
Based on the enormously popular Astral V-Eight, the V-Eight Fisher PFD might just be the most breathable kayak fishing life vest on the market. With a high back, mesh design on the rear and Astral’s Airescape on the front, overheating is a thing of the past.
Ever been fishing and forgotten which pocket you’ve put your pliers in? Or where your phone is this time? With the Sturgeon, Astral have solved your problems by consolidating five pockets into one enormous clamshell style pocket. This might sound confusing, but when the pocket itself can be used as a shelf, and with the level of internal organisation that Astral have included, it’s easy to find anything you need.
The front of this PFD might look remarkably like NRS Chinook, but the Raku is the only NRS fishing PFD which has a full back. This allows the entire PFD to be made from slimmer foam, making it less bulky, more close fitting and figure hugging.
The workhorse of the range, the Stohlquist Fisherman PFD is designed for serious anglers who want a vest which will not only be comfortable and cooling to paddle in, but which will give them maximum workspace.
Stohlquist Keeper PFD utilizes the same high quality construction and comfort as Stohlquist’s recreational and touring PFDs, but with the additions of fishing specific features. This is an excellent, year round fishing vest.
