Worn around a paddler's waist, the NRS Zephyr Inflatable PFD is a convenient alternative to traditional life jackets for flatwater or near-shore stand-up paddling.


  • Lightweight self-inflating PFD provides 15.5 lbs. of flotation and only meets U.S. Coast Guard requirements as a Type III life jacket when worn
  • Stores in a compact, adjustable nylon ripstop waist pack that stays out of your way for SUP, surfing or wading
  • In the event of a swim, simply rotate the belt until the chamber faces forward, pull the red tab to inflate with pressurized CO2 and secure the inflated PFD over your head
  • Adjustment straps on the inflated PFD allow for a customized fit
  • Includes a 24g CO2 cartridge meant for a single use only; replacement CO2 rearming kits are sold separately
  • Waist belt features a zippered stretch pocket with internal tether for keys or a whistle
  • Also features a manual backup valve, reflective accents and 2 D-ring attachment points


Note: An inflatable PFD is certified by the US Coast Guard as a Type V PFD. However, it meets Coast Guard requirements for Type III PFDs when it is worn. In other words, you must have the pouch secured around your waist for it to qualify as a required flotation device.
