Stohlquist at Paddlesports Retailer 2018 Alex Traynor

Form-fitting foam and secure fit adjustment are easy to wear all day

In some cases, less is more. When it comes to lifevests, a lower-profile and lighter model will often be more comfortable and easier to wear. At Paddlesports Retailer 2018, Stohlquist Waterwear’s Ryan Lightbody introduced us to the Betsea PFD with a great fit and just enough features for a great day on the water. We liked the large pockets in front big enough for safety gear but slim to stay out of the way. Soft foam is shaped to fit snuggly without squeezing. We like the long side adjustment strap to prevent ride-up and integrated grab handle in the back. The Betsea features hidden reinforced tie-downs for river knife, strobe and tabs in the back to hold a hydration bladder.
