Buoyancy Aids for Canoeing and Kayaking

Paddling PFDs & Buoyancy Aids

Buoyancy Aids are an essential piece of safety equipment and we highly recommend always wearing one when taking part in any type of water sport.

General Purpose Buoyancy Aids

Entry-Level buoyancy aids suitable for Sit On Top Kayaking, Canadian Canoeing, Touring & Sea Kayaking. These are generally quite simple in design, but meet all the relevant safety standards and do exactly what they need to.

Touring & Sea Kayaking

These buoyancy aids are more technical and have more features than general purpose buoyancy aids, generally they are front zip entry for ease of access and will often have lots of pockets for storing on the water essentials.Many of them also have a hydration bladder pocket in the back for easy access to your drink and save fumbling for a drink bottle on longer sea paddles.

High Back Buoyancy Aids

This style of buoyancy aid has a reduced length of back foam which means that the buoyancy aid doesn't interfere with your seat's back rest which makes them very popular with touring paddlers and kayak anglers who have high-backed seats.
