Stearns Comfort Series Collared Angler Vest

PFD Make & Model

MSRP ($):

A personal flotation device is mandatory for kayak angling, but just because it is designed to save your life doesn’t mean it can’t be versatile too. A good example of this is the Comfort Series Collared Angler Vest PFD from Stearns. It’s not just a US Coast Guard-approved life jacket, but has plenty of useful features for avid kayak anglers as well. It has also been designed with convenience and comfort in mind, so you can focus on angling instead of constantly fiddling with the jacket.

The first design feature of note on this PFD is the large armholes. Many PFDs are not really suitable for angling because their tight armholes restrict movement and make casting virtually impossible. There’s no such issues with the Stearns Comfort Series PFD as the armholes are large enough to allow you plenty of freedom of movement. The vest is also collared and, for added comfort, the collar is made from flexible neoprene. Since neoprene is resistant to heat and weathering it is very durable and will also prevent the jacket from chafing you. To prevent the jacket from feeling too stuffy, it has mesh shoulder panels. These shoulder panels allow for added ventilation and are great for breezy days.

Stearns has added two large zippered pockets to the front of the vest, which comes in useful if you have smaller items or tackle that you want to have with you at all times. These front pockets also double as cozy hand warmers on days where the temperature drops a little too low. In terms of design, the Stearns Comfort Series PFD is made from PVC/PE flotation foam, which is surrounded by a very durable 200D nylon oxford shell. It has a zippered front, along with two adjustable webbed straps.

Overall, the Stearns Comfort Series PFD is great, although it may feel a little bulky to some anglers who are used to something a little lighter. The fact that it does not ride up when you are moving around on the kayak is a big plus and those large pockets certainly helps a lot.
