Get ready for an ultimate fishing experience with the NRS Raku Fishing Life Vest (PFD). This traditionally styled vest is tailored to deliver a well-ventilated, thin-back profile, making it an ideal fit for any kayak, raft, or drift boat seat. Ensuring your safety with dual certification, this vest is recognized by the US Coast Guard and Transport Canada, promising trusted and reliable protection.
The NRS Raku Fishing Life Vest is designed with all paddlers in mind. The XS/MD size is perfect for those weighing from 88 lbs to 132 lbs (40 kg to 60kg) with chest measurements from 30″ to 42″ (76cm to 107cm). The LG/XL and XL/XXL sizes cater to individuals weighing over 90 lbs (41kg), fitting chest sizes of 42″ to 52″ (107cm to 132cm) and 50″ to 56″ (127cm to 122cm) respectively.
One of the remarkable features of this vest is its PlushFit foam flotation technology, designed to distribute flotation more evenly across a larger area. This reduces the bulkiness of the vest, enhancing the comfort level. Its unique five-panel design aligns flawlessly with your body’s contours, offering an impressive range of motion whether you’re paddling, rowing, casting, or reeling in your catch.
In terms of storage, the NRS Raku Fishing Life Vest shines with two large, zippered pockets, equipped with internal organization features. This is supplemented by two smaller accessory pockets and a dedicated tool holder pocket, offering quick access to your fishing essentials. The vest also features a rod holder, knife lash tab, and reflective accents for increased visibility.
With a user-friendly zippered front entry and six adjustment points, the vest ensures a customizable fit. Constructed with a tough 400-Denier ripstop nylon outer fabric, this vest is made to withstand the harshest fishing conditions. Its reliable design assures adequate floatation with the XS/MD providing 14.5 lbs (6.58kg), and the LG/XL and XL/XXL offering 16.75 lbs (7.6kg). Despite these features, the vest maintains a light dry weight of 2.10 lbs (953g).
