Styled for female recreational paddlers, this high-back life vest features articulated, body mapping panels that accommodate a woman's natural curves. The flexible Gaia PVC-free foam panels are cut to allow the Naiad to wrap the paddler in comfort and security. With the soft texture of the durable 100D stretch polyester fabric, the Naiad makes comfort a priority. An added feature: The fleece-lined handwarmer pockets. This Life Vest is certified for use in both the US (by The US Coast Guard) and Canada (by Transport Canada). You do not need to select a certification. The life vest is dual certified for both countries.
