Kokatat Maximus Prime PFD
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Designed specifically for swift-water rescuers and whitewater professionals, the Kokatat Maximus Prime Personal Flotation Device is a full-featured vest that can handle season after season of abuse at the hands of the hardest paddlers in the river. Burly 500D Cordura resists abrasion and the environmentally friendly Gaia foam offers high-performance flotation. It's stacked with safety features like a front lash tab that serves as a mounting point for essential gear, a quick-release chest harness and stretch mesh sleeve that accommodate a rescue tow tether, and an anchor for a strobe light at the back. And while you'll find many of these same safety features on the two other Kokatat class-V PFDs, the slimmer Ronin Pro and the more spartan Guide, the Maximus Prime offers the most chest protection, the widest shoulder straps, and the added security of dual front webbing adjustments, making it the ultimate solution for those looking for a professional-grade tool for rescue or heavy whitewater.
Built for all paddling disciplines with design input from badass paddlers Eric and Dane Jackson, the Kokatat Maximus Prime is a Type V Rescue PFD loaded with features like the Dynamic Suspension System, front adjustments, and quick-release safety harness. This product will be shipped directly from Kokatat and will leave their warehouse in 1-2 business days. Eligible for UPS ground shipping only.
Kokatat Maximus Prime Rescue Kayak Lifejacket - The Maximus Prime Rescue Kayaking Lifejacket by Kokatat is the perfect paddling companion whether you're an extreme whitewater paddler or an aggressive ocean paddler. Like all of Kokatat's rescue lifejackets, the Maximus Prime is made of environmentally friendly Gaia PVC-free foam encased in a 500 denier Cordura outer shell for extra durability. Designed and manufactured to the exacting standards set by the US Coast Guard, Transport Canada, and the European Union, this low profile vest features Kokatatâ??s Dynamic Suspension System (DSS). Wide, contoured shoulder straps allow an independently suspended front flotation panel to move freely with the paddler through the most athletic tricks and critical moves. In addition, Kokatat designers have moved all the webbing adjustments to the front of the vest, making it so easy to dial in the comfort. The Maximus Prime features ergonomic pockets, sensible storage capacity, several attachment points for accessories like a knife or strobe, and the strength required for swift water rescue. It also comes with a quick release chest harness and O-ring, as well as a stretch mesh sleeve for your cowtail or tow tether (not included). On the river or sea, if you go big then stay safe and comfortable in the Maximus Prime Rescue Kayaking Lifejacket by Kokatat.
