by WillyBfromRonny did the Jobafter suiting up for a fun ride on the Swananoa last weekend no adjustment required. Even after a roll over with complete dunking and loss of boat. Worked perfect and not to hot (temp) or restrictive. Recaptured boat and continued the ride. Easy paddling, no restriction from pdf.

by mndocfromShould be a good choice for canoeingI wanted a sleek minimalist PFD for day trips in moderate to warm weather where I would have access to my gear in a dry bag, and thus not need multiple pockets. I really liked this PFD. It is well made and comfortable; easy to adjust. The pocket in front is a good option if you are likely to get wet. The back is open down the middle which would give good ventilation. So I tried out this PFD and the Kokatat Bahia sitting in a kayak at the store and ultimately bought the Kokatat. The main difference was that this has a foam pad the whole length of the back, and I was concerned it would hit the back of my kayak seat and not be comfortable. But it really depends on your boat, and for the money this would be a great choice.
