This pfd has a fabric coating that is superior to anything else I’ve worn. I typically find the nylon material of pfd’s to be uncomfortable, clammy, and sticky but the proteus feels more like a moisture wicking shirt. The high back is nice when paddling. It’s not too heavy or stuffy and is very adjustable and easy to get on and off.
Our most comfortable life vest ever thanks to soft, Gaia PVC-free foam that's cut and sculpted into body-mapped, floating panels. Each foam panel is precisely slit to provide adaptable and ergonomic fit, wrapping the torso in secure comfort. A soft 100D stretch polyester envelope finishes off this high-back recreational life vest, with fleece-lined hand warmer pockets for the colder days.
