Have you seen the great new gear from NRS?

For 2024 we’re excited to introduce NRS’s latest range of Buoyancy Aids and PFD’s. Considered a leading producer of top-tier gear, NRS have crafted these especially for kayaking, rafting, and paddleboarding, these are well worth a look if you’re in the market for a new buoyancy aid this year!

It’s an impressive lineup that offers something for everyone and promises new levels of comfort thanks to the Orbit Fit System, and lighter weight PVC free foam.

⭐ The all-new Orbit fit System enhances overall comfort, increases range of motion, and eliminates the desire to over-tighten. Layers of precision cut foam allow the foam curve and wrap around you better.

⭐Layers of Light Weight PVC-free Ethafoam provide the floatation.

⭐Graded Sizing offers improved fit and comfort over previous NRS designs. Each size receives its own specifically cut and sized pieces of foam for a better fit that is more reflective of the label size
