     My search for the "perfect all around PFD for kayaking" looks like it may have reached a conclusion with this beauty. The quality of construction and the attention to detail made it shine. I paddle mostly, touring kayaks, but do wander into a whitewater boat when I can. This PFD has fit any cockpit I've tried, the high cut back panel seems to clear any backband/coaming configuration out there. The main attraction for me is the integrated quick release "tow/rescue" harness. I tried numerous water entries and found that this PFD always ended up leaving me face up (preferred). About the only drawback on this unit is the lack of a pocket that will fit a VHF radio. Oh, you get the really cool "Lotus Designs" logo on the back along with ample reflective striping.
