Flowt Mesh Fishing Adult Life Vest Type III PFD

PFD Make & Model

Brand:
Flowt
MSRP ($):
38.51

Flowt has a couple of personal flotation devices aimed aimed at fishermen, but the Type III is their most expensive model, which presumably means it has the best features. However, as it usually retails for in the region of $50, it is still a very inexpensive PFD compared to some of the other bigger brands. While this PFD has a lot to like considering its price, it is only available in two sizes, which is Universal Adult and Oversize Adult. The first is designed to fit chest sizes 30”-52” and the latter chest sizes 52”-62”. Although this should be sufficient for most anglers, there have been a few reports of people who found this PFD to be too tight.

Like many other PFDs, this one offers mesh integration, but also uses it on the shoulder straps, which helps to increase the overall airflow and comfort. The mesh also ensures that the PFD doesn’t bunch up as much as is the case with some cheaper PFDs. It is not quite as comfortable and ergonomic as a PFD with a high back mesh panel, but it gets the job done. The shoulders also feature reflective tape to make you more visible when fishing during dusk or dawn. To secure the PFD in place, it has a zipper and dual belts on the front. On the front you’ll also find a D-ring attachment that can be used for holding smaller accessories.

In terms of storage options, this PFD only has two pockets on the front. They are large enough to stow away bigger items, but both only use Velcro for closure and not zippers. Overall this is a decent enough PFD, but the lack of pockets might be a concern for anglers who like to be prepared. It is definitely very affordable, but don’t expect the same features and comfort as more high end PFDs.
