NRS designed its Zen Personal Floatation Device for paddlers and guides who need swiftwater rescue features like a quick release belt. Despite its heavy duty Cordura fabric and reinforced shoulder straps, this PFD is surprisingly comfortable to wear thanks to its front floating panel that provides a great fit as well as a place to put your hands when it gets cold. NRS stuffed this type V PFD with PVC free foam for 17. 5 pounds of flotation. A side entry makes the Zen easy to take on and off, and four side and two shoulder straps dial in your ideal fit. This life vest also features a large front pocket and an inner pocket to hold all your rescue essentials so you can stay safe out on the water.
