I bought this PFD to accomodate rescue/safety items I need to carry
on open water trips or when leading a group. I have been delighted
with 95% of the PFD. The fit is great. It is short enough that I can
cinch up the bottom strap and it snugs right under my rib cage,
tight enough so that it does not move at all when I am in the water.
The pockets offer ample storage. I mostly use the side pockets so
that nothing gets in my way when practicing self rescues. My only
complaint is that my Gerber River Shortie Knife will not fit in the
knife carrier. My husband thinks he can shave it down to fit with a
Dremmel tool but for now I am carrying it in the long skinny front
pocket and that actually works quite well.
I am a 5'9" , 230 lb. male. I ordered an XL
and it fits perfectly.
Plenty of adjustment straps. Pockets with
lashings for a whistle and flashlight.
Exterior knife tab with cover and a large
front rectangular pocket for my Cobra VHF
radio. Also a tab on back for an emergency
strobe light. Quality fabric and stitching.
When strapped in, it floats me high in the
Great PFD, great price and great service !
Thank you ACK and Jason !!!
I have 5 of these jackets, the
oldest being almost 10 years
old and the newest just a
month. They keep making an
already superb design better
every year. Super comfortable
and adjustable, with lots of
pockets. I won't wear any
Fits well, light weight,
comfortable. I like zipper/buckle
combo for closure. Larger pockets
Great fit - comfortable
I love this pfd. Its very
comfortable--I can paddle it
without chafing or feeling
like I cant breathe. The back
is thinner than the front,
making it more comfy to lean
against my seat support. Lots
of pockets, well made. I am
I thought it might be too
bulky in front but it is
working well. The
arm space has plenty of room.
The thinner sides make it more
comfortable. I used it for
paddleboarding too and felt it
back up out of the water
Great PFD for kayaking. With
the different adjustments its
very comfortable and doesnt
ride up. The only issue is the
size chart is misleading. I
had to order up two sizes even
though I measured in the med.
Purchased this for my good
ladywife who is an
experienced sea kayaker, of
small and athletic
build. She has been using it
now for several weeks
and says it is by far the most
practical PFD she has ever
used. Excellent product!
Purchased for my significant other, as it
is specifically designed for a woman. For
fit, function and comfort it is an
amazing value. It has more pockets and
functional features than my more
expensive vest, and I am jealous! Highly
While we have not had a chance to use these PFD's on the water, it is a well constructed and comfortable vest. The pockets, zipper, buckles and straps are well placed and the fit is great.
I would highly recommend the Kakotat MsFit Tour PFD to anyone! I was encouraged by a friend to buy one, and am so glad I listened. It is extremely comfortable and very functional. The pockets are brilliant for holding things such as energy snacks, my Spot Tracker, etc. The flotation is excellent while not being at all bulky. There is nothing I would change about it, i love it!
