Peak UK Explorer Zip


The Peak Explorer Zip is a well designed PFD for sea kayaking and touring paddlers. The Explorer Zip features two spacious pockets on the front, which are great for storing safety gear close to hand. There is also a hydration bladder pocket on the back foam panel, meaning you can easily stay hydrated.

The Peak UK Explorer Zip PFD features a front entry zip which is one of the most convenient methods of donning the buoyancy aid, especially when trying to fit on top of a few extra layers during the colder months.
