River Pro


The River Pro is a top of the line PFD designed specifically for river paddling.The River Pro PFD is incredibly comfortable with our integrated harness system providing a snug and secure fit by clamping the vest to your body.

The integrated harness system means all straps are attached to the skeleton of the PFD so that it won’t move around when paddling, making life easier, more comfortable and reducing the likelihood of any chafing. The River Pro also has padded shoulders to make carrying your boat during portages easier, a large kevlar covered pocket so your belongings can be stored and protected, as well as some useful safety features like a 38mm towline belt with quick release cam and a stainless steel ring.

  •  Padded shoulders make carrying your boat far more comfortable
  •  The MASSIVE Kevlar front pocket gives you plenty of secure storage space for all your important bits of gear.
  •  Attachment point to integrate the PFD to your climbing harness on those tricky walk-ins.
  •  Knife pocket gives you a secure place to store a knife if you need it.
  •  The towline comes as standard and allows you to tow others out of trouble.
