Here's what other sites are saying:

Kokatat designed the Bahia Tour Personal Flotation Device for anything from kayak-based fishing to paddling through a chain of lakes. The variable-thickness foam back and mesh vents reduce bulk and promote air circulation to keep you cool during the hot summer day. The Kokatat Bahia Tour Personal Flotation Device has a high back design to work well with recreational kayaks or boats with tall seats. Front and back reflective tape improves visibility to spotlights, and a tab in back the back holds a strobe to help the cavalry locate you.
