Delivering on-demand flotation that doesn't get in your way stand-up paddling, fishing or wading, the NRS Matik inflatable PFD folds compactly down into a horse-collar jacket for on-water convenience.


  • Lightweight, self-inflating PFD provides 22.5 lbs. of flotation; jacket only meets U.S. Coast Guard requirements as a Type III life jacket when worn
  • In the event of a swim, pull the red tab to engage the pressurized CO2, inflating the integrated bladder
  • When deflated, vest secures with a waist buckle and offers 1 adjustment point for a snug fit
  • Features a zippered pocket with internal tether for keys or a whistle; also includes manual backup cord, mouth inflation valve and 2 attachment points
  • Includes a 24g CO2 cartridge meant for a single use only; replacement CO2 rearming kits are sold separately
  • Reflective accents provide visibility during low-light outings


Note: An inflatable PFD is certified by the U.S. 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.
