Buoyancy aid or Child Buoyancy Aid  

The Palm Universal is an entry-level buoyancy aid that is ideal for sit on top kayaking, canoeing and other Watersports such as dinghy sailing.

It is a number one choice for many paddlers due to the adults size being one size fits all. For this reason it is also very popular with scout groups and many canoe clubs, as it means you don’t need as many to cover the size range!

Palm has designed the Universal PFD to feature a front zip access so it’s easy to get on and off. Once the PFD is on the paddlers torso it s easily adjusted by the side compression straps. The fit of the PFD is then trimmed by the adjustable shoulder straps. 

The two smaller sizes of the Universal PFD, which are the K XS/S and the K M/L, also form part of the Palm Equipment Gear for Kids Range. The smaller sizes are also fitted with crutch straps that will help to prevent the PFD from rising up if not properly adjusted. The XS/S size comes with twin yellow crutch straps while the M/L size comes with a single red crutch strap.
