Great buy

comfortable and the pocket for a water bag is great.

Simple to use, multi function and worth for money

I bought this for kayaking and fishing, so simple to put on you can adjust high level of front part of BA during your kayaking or fishing, with a lots of compartments, you can put a lots of stuff inside especially for fishing, on the back side you can add 1L of water bladder. I bought it for $50, it’s a real deal for money. I love it.

Chất lượng tốt, có thêm túi nhỏ đựng và bình nước dự trữ

Good bit of kit.

Make sure you try on. The XL needed some adjustment but it’s a great vest. Shame store only had XL and M would have been good to try other sizes.

Buoyed Up

This is a great garment. I needed a personal floatation device that wouldn’t break the bank and this one was a perfect choice. In use, it is unobtrusive when paddling, and is easy to put on and take off. The pockets and stowage points are well placed, plentiful and very useful. The added bonus is the 1ltr water bladder pocket in the back panel - genius!

Brilliant product

Had been looking for a decent buoyancy aid for ages, spotted this on line and then in store, tried it on, fits well, has storage pockets on the front and hydration pocket on the back. Works a treat, comfortable to use and does what its been designed for.

Too bulky

Dear Cyrille,

Firstly, we apologize for the uncomfortable product experience created by our product. We take great care to ensure that important matters such as this are properly managed. 

We suggest you can check with our BA50N+ buoyancy, it is lighter and easy to wear. Since it's without any pockets, you may need to carry a waterproof bag for storage.

v BA50+ v

v Waterproof bag 10L v

In light of this, you are welcome to exchange or refund in any of our 5 stores, which we hope will be acceptable to you.

Please contact me should you have any further cause for concern.

Thank you so much.

Stay healthy.

Far far too big

I weigh 70kg and found the 60-80kg variant to be absolutely huge. Far far too big for me. Tried the 40-60kg as well and that would only fit with the straps done up as tight as possible. Pockets are all very convenient though!

Short term feedback

Very good fit for me. At 100kgs it’s hard to find products that fit well and work well. Very comfortable to use while kayaking. Only a bit of rubbing on my arms but not too much of an issue for 1 hour of paddling. Have not tried it for longer periods to give a more thorough review.
