Sea to Summit PFD

3 minute read

Whether paddling is you’re thing, or it’s merely a means to cast your fly into positions that land-dwellers can only dream of, if you do end up in the drink you’ll want to be wearing a PFD (Personal Flotation Device).

The quiet of tranquil waters is undeniable. While being near them is one thing, gliding across them is altogether something again.

For best intentions not to slide, PFDs have got to be comfy. The Sea to Summit Fishing PFD is a non-restrictive shape, and it’s made from slim and soft foam.

The two large front pockets are deep gusseted. They swallow snacks, fishing gear and sunscreen – it’s another good incentive to wear it.

These PFDs are easy on and off using the three front quick release buckles. They are also one size fits most adults using large adjustment sliders at the top and sides, the same adjusters used to make the jacket firm against your body.

The Sea to Summit Fishing PFD meets Australian Standards for safety. It’s a PFD Type 2 under AS4758 to be exact.

It’s worth remembering that PFDs in general only work well when cinched up snug, otherwise they slide up when we hit the water.

The outer layer of PFDs bears the brunt of heavy use, and in this one Sea to Summit use a durable 600D Polyester.

Wearing PFDs can be a bit like bike helmets, but find one that’s comfortable for you, use it to stow gear like keys and snacks, and it will become habit in no time.
