Stohlquist melded the comfort of an everyday PFD with the slim lines of a more low-profile, athletic-style design in order to create the DRIFTer Personal Flotation Device. Hand-carved float panels sit low and wrap around the chest with a cleverly-shaped curve that gives this vest a hardly-there feel. Straps at the shoulders, sides, and chest allow plenty of adjustability, and the extra-wide armholes let you dip your paddle with ease whether you're in the boat everyday or only on the weekends.
