The NRS Inflatable PFD is a great accessory for standup paddleboarders or surfers who need to comply with state laws, but do not want the bulk and discomfort of a traditional jacket-style life vest. This PFD sits comfortably around your waist and self-inflates with a simple pull of the ripcord. This PFD will not qualify and is not intended for river use.
This lightweight self-inflating PFD provides 15.5 lbs. of flotation and meets U.S. Coast Guard requirements. (See Note below.)
The compact, adjustable ripstop nylon waist pack stays out of your way for SUP or surfing.
A simple tug on the cord instantly inflates the PFD with pressurized C02 gas.
A 16 gram CO2 cartridge is included with the Zephyr. NRS CO2 Re-Arming Kit is sold separately. It's a good idea to have extra re-arming kits on hand.
Unlike many other self-inflating life jackets, the flotation chamber stays around your waist.
Simply rotate the belt until the chamber faces forward, pull the inflation cord and secure the attachment strap over your head.
A manual mouth valve backs up the CO2-powered inflator.
The bag's clear window lets you check the inflation system for readiness.
Note: This PFD is certified by the US Coast Guard as a Type V PFD. However, it meets Coast Guard requirements for Type III PFDs when it is worn. In other words, you have to have the pouch secured around your waist for it to qualify as a required flotation device. This PFD will not qualify and is not intended for river use.
