The Vaikobi Ocean Racing PFD

Join me as I provide a video overview of my favorite piece of gear, the Vaikobi Ocean Racing PFD. I’ve been using the Vaikobi PFD for a couple of years now and continue to be impressed with its design and performance.

The Vaikobi Hi Vis PFD will not only make you feel lighter and more comfortable in your boat or SUP, but will also make you highly visible to those around you for when you want to be seen.

Key Product Features:

  • ISO 12402-5 (Equivalent to AS 4758 Type 2)
  • Two fully closable mesh pockets with lanyard to securely store key safety items
  • Super lightweight and breathable
  • Hi Vis Fluro Yellow for maximum visibility
  • Hydration compartment on the back to store your hydration pack
  • No side panels for maximum breathability
  •  Easy access mesh pockets for storage of energy gels
  • Padded shoulders
  • Front center zipper for ease of putting on
