Safety first! We never kayak without a PFD—and neither should you. The Oru PFD is made in California by Kokatat, the industry leader in high-performance kayaking gear. Large arm openings make paddling and movement free and easy—even if you’re wearing a jacket. Its rugged nylon construction will last for years, and the GAIA flotation foam is vinyl-free. And, of course, our PFD is U.S. Coast Guard approved.
Note: Most U.S. States and foreign countries require an approved PFD to be worn at all times while kayaking.
