Kokatat Guide PFD Women's Towing and Rescue PFD

$ 249.00 USD


Don't let the name "Guide" confuse you, women don't have to be a pros to appreciate the Kokatat Guide PFD. For women, the Guide PFD is simply the best Type V rescue/towing life jacket for both river and sea kayaking. The Guide PFD is the top of the line life jacket in the women's MsFIT series by Kokatat.

Some men like the Guide too because it has such good pockets for sea kayaking, but we recommend they try a true men's fit PFD such as the Ronan PRO. The secret about the Guide is that even though the label doesn't say it is a women's PFD, it has the exact same fit as the women's MsFIT and MsFIT TOUR model PFDs. Basically the Guide is just a MsFIT TOUR with a quick release tow harness/rescue belt and two external pockets (MsFIT has three). Towing tether systems easily attach to the quick release tow belt (tow lines and tethers sold separately). The curved cuts in the front panels conform to a women's body. If you've found all the other "women's" PFDs still give you that crushing feeling, you need to try the Kokatat Guide PFD.

As with all the PFDs in the Kokatat women's MsFIT series, the Guide model has double-stitched seams throughout, triple-stitched where needed for added durability, bar tacked stress points, plus the Guide has extra reinforcements for the rescue/towing harness. All the PFDs in this series have beveled extra soft flex GAIA® foam, adjustable and padded thermal-molded shoulders. Three adjustment straps on each side plus shoulder adjustment straps give this Type V PFD a secure fit that minimizes the PFD's tendency to float up around your face when in the water. The Guide comes with front and rear reflective tape, front and rear lash tabs (rear for emergency strobe and front for knife), a hidden pocket behind zipper for small items, D rings in pockets to attach things to, a generously sized combination zipper and flap top pocket on left, and a tall electronics pocket (for VHF radio, GPS, etc.) on the right. The optional Tributary Hydration System or accessory Rear Pocket can be attached as well (sold separately).
