Proteus Life Vest

(2) Write a Review

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.

    This PFD is fantastic... soft flexible floatation material provides a far superior “fit” vs other brands I tried on (including ones made specifically 4 women). Additionally the arm holes are cut low so when I paddle the vest won’t chaf my arms & get in the way. Mesh back a + too! LOVE this vest.

    The Gaia foam conforms to body parts nicely and stays out of the way of arm movement. My former pfd (not a Kokatat) was bulky and in the way of free movement. The Proteus is a great improvement
