Palm FX Buoyancy Aid
The Palm FX is a popular 'vest', or over the head style buoyancy aid suitable for a wide range of paddling which features a great low profile cut for maximum movement, a decent amount of buoyancy and good strong 'failsafe' padded shoulder straps similar to those you find on Palm's range of white water specific PFD's all in bright modern colours that look great on the river.
The buoyancy is distributed with a slight bias to the front panel making it a little thicker but as it sits fairly low on the body this doesn't impede movement, while the back panel is slightly thinner, narrower and longer. You will also find a large zipped pocket on the front of the FX with a D-ring attachment point for everything you need on the water.
Aimed mostly at playboaters this is a really good example of a general purpose PFD that is affordable and can be used across disciplines at a low to intermediate level after which point you may want to look at more specialized PFD's for instance with more floatation, storage and rescue features.
Features of Palm FX PFD are:
• Low profile foam panels
• Slimline front pocket with inner compartment, key ring clip and space for a sling and chocy bars!
• 3D anti ride-up waistbelt.
• Easy Glide strap adjustment throughout
• Continuous loop failsafe shoulder straps with strap keeper pockets
Fabric: Nylon 250D
