Great kid pfd

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Kids were with us all day on river kayaking. They paddled a lot of it too. Never heard them complain. They said they were comfy. And they seem to fit well too. Both girls are on they lower end of the size chart


    This vest is comfortable for kids! We used it while on a boat and just playing in the pool. Would recommend!

    Excellent Vest for Kids

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought this for my 8 year old son to use on the lakes and rivers. Excellent flotation and very easy to put on and off with the adjustable straps.

    great little vest

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a great little life jacket. I bought this jacket for my 4 yr old and my 8 yr old nieces. The adjustments are easy, they are comfortable once they are on, no chin rub to make little ones cry, and a decent amount of flotation. I just wish I could find one with a decent pillow.

    Versatile Size

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought two of these for my niece and nephew for a recent boat trip and they worked great. Fit both of them perfect (girl is 11 and boy is 7, both are average size for their age). They had to wear them constantly while on the boat and never complained about them once.

    Great quality and fit. Looking forward to years of use on this one.

    On the verge of buying the NRS Vista youth pfd for my daughter who will be kayaking this summer but spends most of her days in small sailing boats. Is this also suitable for sailing?

    This PFD will definitely work for sailing.

    Great quality PFD for a child

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a great quality PFD for a child. I bought this last summer for my 9 year old son at the same time I purchased his first kayak and it was perfect. Easy to adjust and no complaints during lengthy lake/river tours. He likes the comfort, color and pockets and I like the security of knowing he is safe on the water.

    what is the weight class/range and chest...

    what is the weight class/range and chest range for this PFD. Could not find the info under details. Thanks!

    The weight range is 50 to 90lbs. The chest sizing is 24" to 29".

    Great for a Small Wife too!!

      Yes my wife really is that small, she's 5'0" and we constantly have to buy kids gear to fit correctly on her. Anyway this is a very solid PFD that makes general boating/rafting a pleasure since she doesn't have to wear the goofy orange 'safety' life jackets or any raft company rentals. The pockets are great since my older Lotus Designs doesn't have any and we can slip car keys and a debit card without worry of them floating away. The fit is good and she actually has plenty of adjustment available. The best part is this is the same exact design as the Adult Vista just without the higher cost!! Ah the small joys of having a small wife, it's a blessing sometimes.
