What make, model, style, or type of PFD do all you paddlers here
use for kayaking and canoeing?

Jen an d I are looking at two companies so far.

First the KŌKATAT Guide PFD. Ronin PFD, OutFit for me and the MsFit Tour PFD for Jen
Or a couple from Stohlquist, the Descent.

The Guide sells for $200.00, Ronin $195.00, OutFit $140.00 and the MsFit $140.00 and the Stohlquist Descent $195.00

These were all at Mountain Equipment Co-op.

Any suggestions folks?

Jen and I went out and bought a brand new tandem foldable kayak a few day's ago!
15.5 feet long, comes in two duffel bags with paddles.
Now were on the hunt for a couple of top end PFD's, extra (Spare) paddle,
compass, Handheld VHF Radio and other related paddle sport crap!
I'll post some better pictures of it tomorrow.

go with the guide model. I have one slightly like that but the zipper is sideways. the longer vests are a pain in the arese when you sit cause they rub everything...specially in these "cruiser" types of kayaks I find. Oh and make sure whatever vest you do get, has a knife holder...saves your ass.

Thanks!

X2 on the knife holder.
Hell, I carry on me all the time at least two knives.
