Kokatat's Maximus Prime rescue PFD is designed for all paddling disciplines. The Prime is a Type 5 rescue version of the Maximus PFD platform, which was designed with input from whitewater paddling champions Dane and Eric Jackson. The Prime features Kokatat's Dynamic Suspension System (DSS) which has wide, contoured shoulder straps that allow an independently suspended front flotation panel to move independently with the paddler. Additionally, webbing adjustments have been moved to the front of the vest for easy fit adjustments. The Prime is constructed with all Gaia® foam and also features a quick release safety harness and O-ring, a tether/ tow system, and is compatible with electronics sling.
Free of CFC ozone depleting materials, Gaia® soft, low density foam wraps your body with safety and comfort in all paddling conditions.
