NRS Ninja PFD Life Jacket - PFD: I like it. Yeah, it is just a little bit bulky in front, but it's cut well for plenty of unrestricted arm movement for paddling. As for the "little bit of bulk", I'm an ex-Coast Guards man, and I understand the need for good floatation. So...I like "a bit bulky" a lot!. I know I can easily stay afloat until I figure out how to get back into the 'yak while in deep water.
I really like his PFD. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistle, but it get the job done. Very compact, not hard to paddle with in rapids, and keeps ya afloat when you swim. The front pocket holds my Garmin Dakota GPS perfectly (and absolutely NOTHING else will fit in it once the GPS is in there). I use the hand warmer section of the Ninja to hold my folding knife. It fits in there nice and snug. I haven't noticed this jacket ride up at all.
