Palm Kaikoura

PFD Make & Model

MSRP ($):

For kayak anglers that want a bit more functionality from their PFD and not just safety, it is always good to invest in something with plenty of pockets. The Palm Kaikoura delivers in this department with large front pockets that has internal compartments to keep your smaller items organized. Thanks to the two-way zippers for the pockets you can easily use them to store your VHF radio while ensure that there is space for the aerial. It also has a large rear pocket for keeping other items secured and a few clip-in points. The rear pocket is ideally suited for stowing away your hydration bladder, which is very convenient if you are out on the water for long periods. Of course, it can get cold out on the water, so while you are sitting back and waiting for the big bite, you’ll appreciate the fleece lined handwarmer pockets found on this PFD.

Comfort is another important consideration when choosing a PFD and the Kaikoura once again delivers, thanks to the Flex Fit foam used in its design. It has adjustable shoulder straps for your safety and comfort as well as Easy Glide straps for further adjustments. The 3D anti ride-up waist belt is easy to secure and the overall cut of the PFD provides a great fit. To ensure that your arms don’t chafe when paddling the Kaikoura has neoprene lined arm openings.

None of the comfort or features offered by the Palm Kaikoura come at the cost of buoyancy, so this is definitely a PFD that you can rely on when needed. Additional safety features also include the obligatory whistle as well as reflective detailing to make you more visible.

Thanks to the sturdy design, comfortable fit, ample pockets and great buoyancy, the Palm Kaikoura comes highly recommended if you are serious about getting a good PFD.
