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.
