NRS Vapor Life Vest

See all pictures

This buoyancy aid by NSR is a superior kayak life vest that is designed to provide you with the high-cost experience at a moderate price.

The construction of the jacket is straightforward – it slides over your head and secures with the help of the side buckles that are fully adjustable. 

The arm cuts are wide enough to accommodate kayakers of all shapes and sizes. You won’t be restricted in your movements, especially when supported by the soft flotation foam that molds to your body like glue. 

The large pocket in the front has a diagonal zipper that is meant to keep the stuff you store in the pocket secure. Behind the pocket, there is a hand warmer pouch for keeping your limbs warm in the chilliest of the days. 

The life vest is approved by the USCG, which makes it a safe choice for long kayaking excursions.
