Zhik‘s new multi-purpose breathable PFD for watersports

Zhik Breathable PFD Front

Dec 19, 2022

Zhik’s new ultra-lightweight, breathable PFD is an ergonomically profiled buoyancy vest, which is so light it barely feels like you are wearing it.

Designed with water-based adventures in mind the Breathable PFD is hydration pack compatible and is fitted with a rear stowage pocket, hose locators and central drinking hose attachment. It has a higher cut front and is moulded to suit a seated position making it particularly comfortable for a kayaking.

The simple pullover design is profiled to allow uninhibited arm movement. The breathable construction allows more air to flow to the wearers body through large negative profiles and via large front and rear airway channels. The vest is lined with a spacer mesh to increase comfort and reduce chafe. It fits neatly and grips lightly to the body with a four-point elasticated compression system, which is easily adjusted or tightened with one hand.

ISO 12402-5:2001 and UKCA, reflective detailing and high vis panels increase visibility and safety in low light conditions. With two air permeable mesh pockets, internal drainage points and a D-ring safety rope attachment point, Zhik’s breathable PFD makes for an all-round practical and comfortable PFD for safer paddling, boating and watersports.

Available in Unisex sizes S – XL.

RRP: CAN $ 209.95 (excl sales tax)
