PFD for Whitewater kayaking or White Water kayaking PFD

The Peak UK River Guide is a strong competitor for the best PFD for white water kayaking. It has a very proud design heritage that goes right back to the London 2012 Olympic Games. This River Guide Vest has the same Gold Medal winning Olympic cut that was also featured in the Slalom Kayak PFDs that were used by the GB Canoe Slalom Team.

Peak UK has designed the River Guide to have a top performance cut, which allows it to be put on and easily removed. Once on the paddlers torso, there are three stages of adjustment. Firstly, there is a set of waist straps. Secondly, a second set of hidden side compression straps that help hug the torso for a firm and secure fit. Lastly, the final adjustment comes from the shoulder straps. The River Guide uses single strap shoulder straps, this means that each strap is integrated into the waistband and uses one continuous webbing strap. So that if the buckles fail while its hauled on, the buoyancy aid can still be lifted.  The comfort is then enhanced due to the padded covers on the shoulder straps.

The River Guide is packed with lots of great features. Firstly, it has four pockets. The main pocket is vast and also features an anchor point for securing things. The second pocket is located behind the main pocket and has symmetrical access points which run down either side of the main pocket. This pocket can be accessed from each side. The third pocket is located on the very front and is easy to access quickly.  The last and final pocket is just above the waist and is designed for a river rescue knife. As this is a PFD for whitewater kayaking, it also features an adjustable chest harness that can be changed to suit both right handed and left handed paddlers. This PFD also incorporates split D-rings for attaching a cowstail if required.
