The Jackpot PFD is an evolution step forward from the Saluki. A portion of buoyant volume in both front and back panels is moved to an external foam pillow; this pillow is inserted into a pocket in a spray deck. The front panel is extremely thin and of low profile allowing to minimise the space between the body of a kayaker and a gate during tight clearance of gates. The foam of the back panel is also reduced and the design of the vest is adjusted to be more fitted. The external pillow is shaped to fit the space between the knees of a kayaker. It is connected to the body of the vest through flexible neoprene belt. The pocket on top of the spray deck and the spray deck itself are designed to compress the pillow below the level of the deck when inserted. During deep lean-backs the pillow sits securely in the pocket and any motion of the kayaker is absorbed by the flexible belt; even when in full extension the belt keeps the vest in place and the external pillow remains bellow of the deck / inside the kayak. The Jackpot is equipped with a system of high-tension straps, flexible neoprene shoulder straps with tight stop, 3 pairs of adjustment straps on the sides one of them flexible for more accurate adjustment.
