Product Details

Anglers looking for a more traditionally designed jacket should choose the NRS Raku PFD featuring a ventilated, thin-back that comfortably fits any kayak, raft or drift boat seat.
  • This PFD is approved under the new certification system for PFDs. It's dual certified, carrying both a US Coast Guard Approval through Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and a Transport Canada Approval through Underwriters Laboratories Canada (ULC).
  • The XS/M is rated for users weighing at least 88 pounds and less than 132 pounds and having chest measurements of 30"-42" (including apparel layers).
  • The L/XL and XL/XXL sizes are rated for users weighing over 90 pounds. Use the chest measurement ranges (including apparel layers) in the sizing chart for choosing your size.
  • The thin back construction distributes the PlushFit™ foam flotation more broadly to reduce bulk and improve the fit.
  • Five-panel design conforms effortlessly to your body's shape, following your movements as you paddle, row, cast and land.
  • Two large, zippered pockets, sized for tackle boxes, with internal organization, plus two smaller accessory pockets with hook-and-loop closure.
  • A fifth, tool holder pocket offers quick access to pliers, line cutters or other fishing gadgets and accessories.
  • Also features a rod holder, reflective accents and knife lash tab.
  • Convenient front, zippered entry and six adjustment points for a customized fit.
