The newly designed Zen PFD has been a massive hit among the best paddlers in the world. The new comfortable design provides a side entry which makes getting in and out of the BA easy while kitted up in your favourite paddling clothing including a dry suit. 8 points of adjustment provide versatility for different seasons whether you’re layering up for winter or going skin to wind in the summer you can always find that perfect fit. The Low profile design with floating front panel makes sure that you’re not restricting your paddle strokes on the water enabling you to focus on the rapids ahead.

The ‘clam shell’ style front pocket allows you to keep everything that you need on the river at close reach. While the organised inner pockets allow you to separate your spare slings or rescue kit from your on river snack. The easy access envelope pocket allows for extra equipment on longer days on the water.

If you get cold hands while waiting for shuttle then the NRS Zen has you covered. Designed to keep the chill of you while not paddling the built in fleece hand warmers, making scouting a rapid warmer and more comfortable.

The quick release belt and perfectly placed knife mount means that you are prepared for a rescue situation before it arises.
