Life is stressful, but it's nothing that a few days of island hopping in the northwest can't take care of. Throw on your NRS Clearwater Personal Flotation Device and slide your kayak into that cold, clear water.


NRS added a ventilated back panel to their popular Clearwater Life Jacket for increased comfort and decreased bulk. By concentrating the 16lb 8oz of flotation on the front of this life jacket, NRS made it comfortable to wear when you paddle a kayak with a highback seat.
