Any kayak anglers with a fondness for offshore fishing will know how important it is to have a good PFD. However, it is just as important to wear something that doesn’t restrict your movement or interfere with your ability to paddle or fish. One manufacturer who believes that they have the solution is Mustang Survival with their Hydro Elite 38 Inflatable PFD.

The Elite 38 was designed for offshore conditions, so you know it can be trusted even in rough conditions. It features a lightweight, yet durable design in order to provide a comfortable fit without compromising quality. At 38 lbs, it also has the highest buoyancy rating for commercial inflatable PFDs. Since the Elite 38 is an auto inflating PFD, it offers the peace of mind that it will activate even if you are not able to trigger it manually. However, since it makes use of Hydrostatic Inflator Technology, it will only inflate when the PFD is submerged, which means there is no risk of accidental inflation in wet conditions. Also, in order to reduce interference, the Elite 38 has a discreet anodized inflation handle.

To increase the durability of the Elite 38, its design incorporates TPU abrasion patches to reinforce the outer shell in areas that typically suffer the most wear and tear. This PFD also offers good breathability as it has a wicking mesh liner as well as back vent. For further comfort, the Elite 38 has a wide shoulder system, which means less neck fatigue compared to more constrictive PFDs. Also, since this PFD is designed for offshore conditions, it has a strobe light holder and safety whistle. Finally, to increase your visibility in the water, the Elite 38 has a bright fluorescent yellow/green inflation cell.

While the Elite 38 is not the type of PFD you would need for fishing in calm waters, it is very useful if you do most of your kayak angling offshore.
