Measure yourself:

  • Chest –Horizontally under the armpits and around the fullest part of your chest and shoulder blades
  • Bust –Horizontally around the fullest part of your bust
  • Weight – include all the gear you’ll be wearing too. PFD buoyancy label: A correct fit is more important than choosing the buoyancy category according to your weight. All Palm PFDs have buoyancy above the minimum floatation required for CE/ISO certification.

Getting the right fit –all measurements refer to body size, not garment dimensions. These charts are only a guide – few people will be the exact sizes shown. Pop in and try the gear on to be sure of a good fit.

               

The FX from Palm is a staff choice, with the kayak department at Robin Hood Watersports loving the low position of floatation as it gives fantastic freedom of movement.  Think of it as the ultimate river play PFD, for big volume, big wave adventures or laps of your local playrun. The comfiest, coolest looking buoyancy aid you'll find. Underneath the bright, clean outer, failsafe shoulder straps and ample foam help keep you safe in your whitewater playground.

I am certified

  • These PFDs pass ISO 12402-5 (water sports) and ISO 12402-6 (paddlesport) standards. The majority of our PFDs have up to 20% more buoyancy than the ISO/CE standard and our whitewater models have up to 40% more buoyancy than the 50 N required. Palm were the first to make PFDs to these ISO standards.

Comfort Fit

  • Layered sheets of soft foam conform to your body shape keeping the PFD comfortable and secure.

Failsafe Shoulder Straps

  • A continuous loop of webbing (tested to 5 kN) runs through to the PFD down to the 3D waistbelt for security under load. They tighten without bunching thanks to the enclosed pulley system. Excess webbing can be stored in strap keeper pockets on top of the front panel of the PFD.

3D anti ride-up waistbelt

  • A grippy rubber finish prevents your PFD from riding up when in use, and the adjustable waistbelt is positioned on the inside of the buoyancy foam panel for full contact around your waist.
