OSFA stands for One Size Fits All. The Stohlquist Osfa is a simplistic, entry level PFD which can fit a wide range of paddlers. This is a great choice for beginner paddlers, or where several different paddlers might be sharing gear.
Stohlquist Escape Youth is based on the popular Escape PFD. This youth version is designed for young or smaller paddlers who don’t quite fit the adult model. Soft foam on the front and rear panels help the Escape Youth to conform to a range of body shapes, fitting comfortably and securely while staying out of the way. It gives you support but does not interfere with your paddling.
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 Escape is a full body, low profile PFD which is so figure hugging that you’ll hardly notice you’re wearing it. This recreational, full panel PFD is a minimalist design, which gives you loads of freedom and comfort without intruding on your paddling experience.
Stohlquist Escape Women has the same low profile design and comfortable cut of the men's Escape, but with the addition of sculpted cups and ergonomically designed princess seams. The female specific Escape Women’s PFD retains that figure hugging design, but with a different figure in mind.
Stohlquist Spectrum is lacking the features which would make it a more advanced PFD, but just because it’s a basic recreational jacket, doesn’t stop it being a really comfortable and well designed piece of gear.
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.
Stohlquist Misty is the female version of the Coaster model. It features the same thin, malleable foam and highly comfortable design, but in a different range of graded sizes. The Misty retains the high quality design and comfort of the Coaster, but is a far better fit for female paddlers.
Just because you’re on a budget does not mean you have to limit your comfort on the water. NRS Vapor PFD has a six-panel construction with soft, malleable foam which contorts to your body. The low profile, snug feel of the Vapor combined with the low cut design gives you maximum movement, for unencumbered paddling.
Stohlquist Ebb is one of the company’s most popular PFDs and is billed as an economic alternative to the Trekker. The Ebb has been steadfast among the range, but has been updated with the graded sizing to give you the best fit possible.
Stohlquist Edge is a low profile whitewater PFD which is perfect for beginners who want the freedom to paddle easily. The small footprint and graded sizing means you don’t have any more foam than you truly need. This allows the Edge to conform to your body and wrap closely to you, giving you a comfortable fit that doesn’t inhibit your paddling.
