Here's what other sites are saying:

Designed for kayak fishing, the Kokatat Bahia Predator Personal Floatation Device makes it immediately clear why it's the go-to for professional kayak anglers. A durable 500-denier Cordura fabric wraps the GAIA PVC-free foam for a construction that holds up against day after day of hard-wearing use. With room for all of your fishing necessities, this PFD's thermo-formed main pocket is spacious enough for a small tackle box, and opens up as a mini work platform for lures, leads, and scissor, while the second front duplex pocket houses your wallet, keys, and phone. Kokatat put comfort at the forefront of this design by featuring a high-back design to meet the high seat backs found in most fishing kayaks.


USED The Bahia Predator Lifejacket by Kokatat is designed with the angler in mind. With tons of storage options for all of your needs, and a large pocket that folds down to create a flat working surface. The variable thickness foam back with mesh vent panel minimizes bulk and maximizes airflow against the taller seats of recreational kayaks and sit-on-tops. The articulated front panels curve around the wearer to make the most comfortable high back PFD available. Made with Gaia PVC-free foam, the Bahia Predator is soft and flexible, while the durable 500D cordura shell offers lasting durability and performance. It has adjustable neoprene padded shoulders, and multiple side adjustments to make sure you get a secure fit. If you are serious about fishing, then you need the Kokatat Bahia Predator Lifejacket.
