Palm Kaikoura


If you are looking for the best Sea Kayaking Buoyancy aid that money can buy, then you dont need to look much further than the Palm Kaikoura; its flex formed foam system and cut away shape means that the Kaikoura offers unrivalled comfort and freedom of movement. Plenty of adjustment on the side straps and over the shoulder, combined with Palm's 3D anti ride up waist belt ensure that you can get the fit just right and avoid the annoying "riding up" that comes with some PFD's.


The newest version of the Kaikoura has seen several refinements since the original; with every pocket, clip and attachment point being thought through and designed to offer the most versatility for whatever type of paddling you are doing. Seven pockets offer enough storage space to keep even the most well prepared paddlers happy; the large rear pocket provides enough room for a drinks bladder and theres an exit from the top for your drinking tube. The ample front pockets have space for whatever you may want to carry; VHF, GPS, Knife, flares, food etc and with fixing points inside there is no problem keeping your stuff secure. Other features of the Kaikoura include Solas reflective details on shoulders and front and rear panels, hand warmer pockets (perfect for those cold days on the water) and various lashing tabs.

The Kaikoura isnt just great for sea kayaking, kayak fisherman love this buoyancy aid for its ample storage capabilities and anyone that is planning on touring, whether it be in a sea Kayak, open canoe or on a sit on top will love its comfort, safety and long list of features.
