Maximum features, minimum weight.
When you’re in it to win it, you need to focus on racing, not on your gear. That’s why you need the Rasdex Multisporter Kayak PFD, a light, feature-filled vest that you won’t remember you’re wearing until you realise you need to re-hydrate (or find yourself floating in the water).
With side and lower buckles that can be fastened both ways, you can slip into this life jacket without jamming a zipper or fumbling with one-way buckles. A race-shaped style means you’ll have maximum shoulder movement and rotation as you splash your way to the finish line. A large front pocket, smaller elastic front pocket, side pockets, rear pocket, and removable rear bungee cord, let you quickly reach your hydration systems, snacks, and accessories as you glide past your competition. So you won’t be run over while training early in the morning, a reflective tab doubles as a loop for attaching a trusty strobe light. If you’re looking for a fully decked-out yet light lifejacket, this is the one for you.
