For years, one of the worst parts about wearing a PFD as a woman was that the vests were largely built for a man. The Stohlquist BetSEA Women's Personal Flotation Device is different. It includes built-in, contoured inner cups for women so you get an unbeatable fit and supreme comfort over long days on the water. Stohlquist didn't stop there, though. In its quest to create the ideal women's vest, it also included a host of comfort features as well as princess seaming that adds style to the BetSEA's women-specific function.
