PFD Recomendations

Posted by Karl on Jun 13, 2004

Hello every. Longtime lurker here and I am pretty new to yaking, mainly been using cheapo rental yaks and pfd's for here at Lake Mead.

I just purchased my first yak, a Ches 18, yesterday. Waiting now for the building fun to begin. But I also started to research a good PFD that is not too cumbersum and has good ventalation. (it gets sometimes over 120 degrees on the lake).

I am looking to spend no more then $140 for it. From what I was researching, I can find some quality PFDs, but there are very few review sites to really get a feel on how they really are.

Any suggestions?
