Stohlquist Escape PFD XS (for small women)

$ 59.95 USD

Stohlquist Escape XS is the best fitting PFD for small women. Nothing fancy, it's a front zip USCG Type III PFD with one pocket, adjustable padded shoulders and two cinch straps on each side. The foam is hand skived for a sleek and contouring fit, but to be honest, more expensive PFD's use better foam that's more flexible for a softer more comfortable feel. However, none of the better PFD's come in this small a size, so for women who are too small to wear a Women's S PFD, the Escape XS will be more comfortable than a higher end PFD that is too big. Better PFD's use more durable shell fabrics too, but they cost twice as much. So at the price of the Escape durability shouldn't be a prime factor; the important thing is finding a PFD that is small enough to fit right.

200D nylon shell and lining, YKK Front Zip.
