Kids PFDs

Hello All,

I have recently gotten a kayak for my niece and nephew. I was wondering if anyone can tell me about PFD companies that are specific for kids. I have seen the astral Otter, but are there others?

Thanks,
Ryan

Ther is a difference betwen true KIDS pfd's and youth pfd's. If your neice and nephew are young kids, make sure you get a pfd with a crotch strap (or run a short strap through the vest and between their legs) so there is no way it can slip over their heads.

My daughter is eight. I just got her the Otter because it doesn't ride up around her neck. She had one from REI made by MTI before and that one did ride up a lot which lead to much wining.

I have NRS Vista youth pfd for my 7 year old 40 lbs boy. It fits him very snug, but I did add a crotch strap just in case. He swam a few rivers in it already and bounces happily in the water without the pfd riding up. Plus it has a lot of pockets full of Lego now, another plus

I have a MTI adventure youth reflex PFD I will sell you cheap. My daughter used it a few years and grew out of it. Has not seen that much use and should have plenty of life left.
