Fishing Vest with Flotation (PFD)

by frank on September 5, 2014

A fishing vest with flotation (PFD) included is the best choice for those of us who fish from a kayak or canoe. Not only will you have all the pockets and compartments to keep all your essentials close at hand but this type of vest might save your life.

Another advantage, if you happen to take a dive in the water the extra buoyancy will lend a little support when attempting to get back into the kayak or canoe. This type of life vest will also come in handy if you hunt duck or geese from your boat.

If you’re interested we have a list that includes our favorite fishing vest with flotation, along with other brands popular will anglers. 

Extrasport Osprey Floating Fishing VestExtrasport Osprey Canoe/Kayak Rafting Fishing Personal Flotation Jacket

An excellent product and our favorite on the market. Many jackets on the market are very thick in the back making it uncomfortable against padded backing of a kayak seat. This Extrasport Osprey vest is thin in the back, your not going to feel uncomfortable when resting back in your seat while wearing this.

There adjustable straps, constructed from a comfortable mesh material so its going to be breathable and keep you cool and its not going to ride up on you when paddling. Our favorite and has received very high ratings from other customers.

We hear many positive remarks on the Stohlquist Piseas PFD the only thing we wonder is how comfortable it is. It looks a little thick in the backing.
