So many to choose from. Which PDF is the thinnest, least cumbersome, for paddling and well as pedaling not including inflatables. I am looking for a slim PDF which meets all Coast Guard regulations. I have tried the NRS Chinook and found it to be to bulky. All suggestions are welcome. I am around 5'8" and 180lbs. Already a little bulky. LOL

We have thinback vests designed specifically for our Hobie pedaling kayaks and the newer high back seats.

btw... it is PFD. Personal Flotation Device. PDF is an Adobe file compression format :)

These are also designed with what they call graded sizes, so the larger ones have more flotation that the smaller sizes. They are also well shaped / contoured. Great for paddling too and short, so they don't rest on your legs while seated.

Yes, of course. I deal with PDF's all day. Thank you for correcting but was it necessary? Have a good night.

Regards

Since you got it wrong 4 times I would say it was necessary. Especially for someone who works with PDF's every day...lol
