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
Our most popular buoyancy aids suitable for Sit On Top Kayaking, Canadian Canoeing, Touring & Sea Kayaking. These are generally quite simple in design, but 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. Quite often these buoyancy aids will also have a hydration bladder pocket in the back to help keep you hydrated on those longer sea paddles.
PFDs & Buoyancy Aids for Kids & Pets
Children should wear a life jacket until they are competent swimmers and weigh more than 30kg.
High Back Buoyancy Aids
This style of buoyancy aid has a specific design feature that helps you to achieve a better connection to your seat. The reduced length of back foam means that the buoyancy aid doesn't interfere with your back rest support. This style of buoyancy aid is very popular with touring paddlers and kayak anglers.
White Water & Surf Kayaking
White water buoyancy aids generally include features such as rescue harnesses and additional safety features such as rescue points and knife pockets.
