Palm Extrem


The Extrem is Palm’s top end PFD, ideal for coaching, expedition and general white water kayaking.

Developed and designed to be the ‘safest’ and most functional whitwater PDF ever, the Extrem is also one of the most comfortable high volume BA’s. Palms ‘Flex Fit’ and 3 dimensional cut creates a snug and secure fit around your torso with the adjustable waist straps preventing the BA from riding upwards. The adjustable shoulder straps and safety chest harness create a comfortable fit and the pre-curved front foam panels shape naturally to the body. The simple side entry system makes the Extrem easy to put on over the top of a drysuit and cags.

Packed with features the Extrem is ready for you to hit the river with all the essentials. A quick-release chest harness makes rescue scenarios safer and the multiple pockets over the Extrem allow you to carry all you need for the day. From snacks to keep you going, to a river knife, 5m tape and water hydration bladder.

All of this has resulted in the Extrem being extremely safe, comfortable but overall simple and easy to wear while paddling all grades of white water.
