My girlfriend is kind of a hard woman to buy a PFD for. She is in
shape but has a big chest. PFDs have been quite uncomfortable for
her. She did not like my NRS Ninja at all. We ordered this one
based on the fact that is was made for a woman's figure. She loves
it. It fits real well and does not compress the chest nor does the top
of the PFD stick out in the chest area. She can wear it all day and
she forgets it is on. Very form fitting and no rubbing while paddling.
She loves the pink and black color.
This is a really great PFD! I am petite (5' 1", under 104 lbs) but
relatively full-breasted for my size, and it can be challenging to find
a comfortable and well-fitting PFD. The Stolquist Betsea fits me well
and feels secure. I really like the styling as well as the multiple
adjustment points and the large zipper pockets. I ordered the
Mango, and it is an attractive, high-visibility color. I have worn it a
few times now, in both traditional expedition-style sea kayaks as
well as recreational sea kayaks with high seat backs, and the PFD
stayed in place and did not feel bulky or impede my paddling. Laura
in Customer Service was very prompt and helpful in her response to
my e-mail inquiry about the sizing of the Stolquist PFDs, and
ordering and delivery were easy and fast. Thank you Austin Kayak!
Love it! It is so comfortable that I actually had to check a few times
to make sure that I was wearing a pfd.
nice life jacket. my wife likes it
This is my first "personal" PDF
that I've purchased and it's
been great! I just took it on a
21-day Grand Canyon rafting
adventure and it was really
comfortable to wear EVERYDAY
and EVERY hour that we were
on the river. (And I'm talking
about 280 miles of river time.)
I felt that the multiple
adjustment straps helped me
find the right fit for me,
something that I didn't quite
feel the same about when it
came to other PDF
definitely recommend this to
other women looking for a
comfortable & stylish PDF!
I love this PFD! So comfy, and
the hand-warming pockets are
a nice addition to it. Fits great,
and I'm sure it would keep me
afloat should I get dunked
from the kayak.
Very comfortable PFD. Very
easy to adjust with all the
adjustment points. The cut out
up top was

Never knew they made vests
Best life vest ever for females.
Great fit and functionality for
Great vest! My wife was excited
that they finally made a vest
designed for a woman! She loves
Great looking jacket/vest. Does
not feel too bulky. Ease of
movement. Comfortable and
made just for women.
Very comfortable. No hot spots.
Wish I had invested in one years
This is the most comfortable
life jacket I have ever worn. It
is adjustable in a way to allow
a custom fit. I can paddle my
kayak and not have the life
jacket ride up under my chin.
