Why We Like The Guide Rescue PFD

Built specifically for guiding on an ocean kayak, the Kokatat Guide Rescue PFD is rated as a Type V personal flotation device by the United States Coast Guard, and is what we count on when paddling off shore. Beyond this rating, the Guide Rescue boasts all of the bells and whistles needed to guide, from tow-system readiness to high-visibility 3M reflective tape. This vest is also built with super durable 500D Cordura and articulated seams. The combination of durability and organization helps keep us prepared on the water.

Fits Women Especially Well

I've put it through the wringer

My wife is "busty" and this PFD fits her better than any one she's tried in 15+ years of kayaking. Not a good idea to add a tow rope to the rescue belt unless you really know how to use them together. Trying to rescue someone could cost you YOUR life.
