Kokatat Women’s Life Jacket

See all pictures

Kokatat has been on the market for many decades already, and it shows. Their women’s life jacket we are about to review is the proof of the high quality for which the brand is known for.

Starting with the 500-Denier Cordura and 200-Denier Nylon fabrics and ending with an extensive size range, there is nothing this vest is short of. The lower back panel is crafted from mesh for that desired airflow, which is further supported by the PVC-free GAIA foam with recyclable properties. 

Other features include thermo-formed shoulders, 3 side adjustments, and 8 zippered pockets. This means that you can customize your life vest in any way you want for that comfortable and free-movement fit. 

The reflective tape is also integrated – it is particularly helpful for those kayaking trips in low light conditions.
