  1. Dave


    Excellent touring buoyancy aid, all the features you need without anything unnecessary to get in the way. Fast service.

    Really well Made PFD

    After looking online at many reviews I opted for the Kaikoura PFD, It didn’t disappoint in that it obviously does what its supposed to do but also fits really well ands lots of nice features like pockets for radios, PLB’s and other essentials, also a water bladder pocket in the back and hand warmer pockets. Good adjustability in the webbing for fitment, price is a little on the high side but all day comfort is paramount.

  3. Dug

    Bit on the pricey side, but does everything well.

    Have been using this for a month now and it works weel. Boyancy, fit, accessories, pockets etc, all good. The one thing I would wish for is a guide to beginners like me. Not sure how I would attach a quick-release knife and I don’t know which straps to use for attaching a rescue line etc. To be clear this isn’t a criticism as the PFD is intended for users who know what they need. All round good product:-)
