With graduated sizing and supportive inner cups, the women's Stohlquist Flo PFD features a dialed fit for a wider range of paddlers, plus an updated mesh high-back design for tall seat backs.


Stohlquist Paddle Flo PFD - Women's-Purple-XS/SM 523160. High back flotation fits comfortably above the seat backs found in today's sit-on-top kayaks.

Unlike conventional PFD's that tend to smash a woman's torso upon zipping it up, the Stohlquist Women's Flo Personal Flotation Device was designed to fit the shape of a woman using an innovative foam design. Cups sculpted into the jacket's interior foam allows for you to cinch down all of the eight adjustment points without feeling uncomfortably tight. Wide arm holes leave room for big and small paddle strokes without rubbing or irritating your skin and a neoprene padded waistband adds a soft touch when you're wearing a bathing suit top or a sports bra. The Flo's flotation foam sits higher up on the back in order to accommodate kayak seats and lumbar supports. And an interior mesh lining helps to pull sweat away from the body on hot, summer days.
