Type III: Through decades of boating and selling life jackets, we've come to realize that the best life jacket is the one you'll actually wear, and a life jacket you'll wear is the one that feels great all-day long. The evolution of NRS PFDs continues with the ultra-comfortable, low profile Ion.
  • The Ion's six-panel design uses ultra soft foam for a flexible fit that wraps effortlessly around your torso and flows with your movements.
  • The raised foam panels of our Cool Flow System (CFS) provides ventilation along the spine for increased comfort on warm days.
  • Tough ripstop nylon adds durability in high-wear areas.
  • Padded shoulder straps, a soft interior lining and fleece-lined hand warmer pouch make this jacket as cozy as it is comfortable.
  • Large, front zippered pocket secures all those on-the-water necessities, and a zipper on both sides makes accessing that sunscreen or camera a cinch, no matter which hand is free.
  • A knife lash tab, shoulder strap garages and reflective accents round out the features.
  • This jacket carries the US Coast Guard Certification, through testing by Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
  • Design flotation: 16.5 lbs.
