Great PFD

The Extrasport “Osprey” PFD has been my first PFD back when I started out kayak fishing about 5 years back. I is a great PFD when I paddled a Wilderness Tarpon 12, Emotion Mojo Angler, Jackson Cuda, and now the Jackson Big Tuna.

I always wear a life vest but the Extrasport “Osprey” PFD is so comfortable that I do not realize that I have it on. It is great in the colder months that it does provide some warmth and in the hot summer it keeps me cool.

I would recommend this PFD to anyone.

Same PFD Second Kayak

I wanted a fishing specific PFD for kayaking and the Osprey fit the bill perfectly. Originally, I was fishing out of a modified 8' sit-in recreational kayak and needed all the additional storage I could find. The Osprey has this covered and then some. You can stuff the pockets with Plano boxes or just straight lures. There is several spots to add lanyards for pliers, rafting knives (I use the NRS Co-Pilot), and clippers. Even after I made the switch to my Cuda 12, I stuck with the Osprey and haven't looked back. It runs a bit on the heavy side, but makes up for it with its ability to accessorize. The floatation on this PFD isn't to be disputed, it will make you float. All around win

All day comfortable PFD

After researching many different types of pfds I bought an extrasport osprey. It is extremely comfortable with its mesh sides and adjustable straps. I also like that it has straps and a zipper in front. It also as lots of pockets of varying sizes so you can carry some gear on you! I found it extremely easy to array my pliers, knife, phone/camera, and some lures. It makes it perfect to take out for a quick trip when you want just a couple lures. The one downfall is that,at least for me, it rides up a touch. I'm not sure if other pfds do this but it rides up maybe an inch then it is good. Even with that I find it extremely comfortable all day. This is a great life jacket that is very comfortable and functional!
