PFDs (Personal Flotation Devices) are an important part of kayaking that some do not put much thought into. We want to make it easy for you to find the right one that works for you and that is going to be comfortable. Everyone should wear a PFD when yaking.
When looking for a PFD it is important to choose the right one. The PFD you choose may change depending on the type of yaking you'll be doing.
Below you will find the five types of PFD's and what they are intended for. I don't imagine many of you will need a class IV for yaking but knowledge is power and if you know what it is and what it's for you are better prepared to choose the right one.
