S/M & L/XL sizes are nearly sold out. Purchase now if you would like a V-Eight this spring

The V-Eight is a lightweight PFD, suited to use in sit-on-top and fishing kayaks. This innovative design has also become very popular for pack rafting, not only because it is light weight, but also due to the ability for the V-Eight to be packed down small.

The foam on the back of the PFD is mounted up high, so regardless of the seat you use, your seat will not interfere with your PFD. If you have struggled to get comfortable with other PFDs, the V-Eight might just be the answer.

The two mesh pockets on the front will store a decent amount of gear - carry your phone (in a waterproof case), a camera and snack bar and your car keys. When the pockets are empty, the mesh sits flat leaving the front of the PFD lower in profile.
