Vaikobi V3 Ocean racing PFD Life Jacket

Vaikobi V3 PFD


Over the last decade the Sydney-based Australian outfit Vaikobi have taken the high-performance bouancy aid and PFD market by storm; austing exsisting brands with innovative products with a focus on manouverability and comfort. 

We particularly like the lightweight Vaikobi V3 for it's ease of moment. Keeping material on the sides to a minimum allows for a light feel and unobstructed arm movement; perfect for paddling. The lack of excess material is also great on summer days with increased breathability compared to the stifling PFDs of old!  


The hidden vertical zips on each of the two chest pockets give a streamlined looked and excellent storage access with either hand! 

The 1.5L water bladder compartment with hands-free tube guide is great premium feature that speak to the fact the Vaikobi are the experts at top end of product development.
