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.

It gives you support but does not interfere with your paddling.
