The Kokatat Bahia Predator PFD is our latest refinement of the Bahia PFD platform for kayak fishing. It features a mesh back panel to maximize airflow against high back seats. GAIA PVC-free foam is wrapped in durable 500 denier Cordura providing many years of rugged use. The ideal kayak fishing life vest, the large, thermo-formed main pocket will hold a small tackle/lure box and hinges down providing a flat work surface with detachable hook/fly storage foam. Multiple attachment points and large second duplex front pocket for additional storage.
Pockets: The Predator features a thermo-formed main pocket, which hinges down to a stable mini work platform for lures, leaders and scissors. This pocket will also accommodate a small tackle/fly box. The vest features a second front duplex pocket for additional storage.
Sit Back Comfortably: To accommodate the high seat backs in most fishing kayaks, the Predator features a high-back design. The lower back is supported with a very thin back panel for added comfort when the vest fit is adjusted correctly.
What the Pros Wear: We worked with the top kayak fishing pros globally to identify the most important modifications to our popular Kokatat Bahia Tour PFD. The Predator is the result and the pro’s choice.
GAIA® PVC-Free Foam: The buoyancy foam in all Kokatat PFDs is GAIA® pvc-free. Gaia® is completely free of CFC ozone depleting chemicals. This recyclable foam is very flexible, taking and retaining the shape of your body for a comfortable, custom feel.
