A compact and comfortable inflatable lifejacket, perfectly suited for kayaking.
The Crewfit 165N Sport inflatable lifejacket is streamlined for compact storage – great for travelling and camping.
Minimal bulk means it is cool and comfortable. The back straps keeps it pulled away from your neck.
The Crewfit 165N Sport lifejacket meets ISO 12402-3 (150N) but with superior buoyancy (165N) so you can use it in open ocean and on speed boats, as well as for kayaking.
To deploy the life jacket, simply pull the red toggle and the CO2 cannister will inflate the jacket.
The new, improved bladder design reduces wave impact on your face, which greatly improves the mouth-free board (distance from your mouth to the water) and provides a unique chin support helping to keep your airways clear.
A built in inflatable chin support tilts your neck back and keeps your airways clear.
Quick Burst Zip means no fiddling around when you need to inflate in a hurry.
Durable fabric, zippers and buckles.
Covered by a 3 year manufacturer’s warranty.

Don't bother with bulky PFDs if you're a ***** woman (or man)
One of my concerns about gearing up to paddle was the need for a PFD. Those puffy life jackets are absolutely unsuitable and impossible to make paddling anything but arduous. I've put up with them in commercial ventures but for my own, if you're a woman who has any semblance of a bust and wears a bra, stay clear of the puffy vest PFDs and DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR and get the Crewfit. It's not in the way when I'm using the paddle and out on the water. You want to be able to move your arms very freely. The Crewfit gives you that freedom plus the peace of mind should you ever find yourself in the water inadvertently. it's well priced and a quality product. it is light and easy to paddle with.. Thoroughly recommended for women and the other advantage is that in warmer climates and weather your clothes can breathe and you're not sweating unnecessarily.
Comfortable and Low Profile
Been used to the "old fashioned" type of life jacket, which I had paddled in for many years. This new style inflatable is so low profile and easy to paddle in. Fortunately, I haven't used it inflated yet so I can't vouch for that component.
