Kokatat Proteus PFD


Stretch Fabric & Sculpted, Body Mapped Floating Foam Panels Make The Kokatat Proteus Our Most Comfortable Life Vest Ever.


Pick Up Online Order & Save!

Our most comfortable life vest ever, thanks to soft, Gaia® PVC-free foam that's cut and sculpted into body mapped, floating panels.  Each foam panel is precisely slit to provide adaptable and ergonomic fit, wrapping the torso in secure comfort.  A soft 100D stretch polyester envelope finishes off this high-back recreational life vest, with fleece-lined hand warmer pockets for the colder days.


POCKETS: The Proteus features 4 pockets (2 zippered, and 2 hand warmers)

SIT BACK COMFORTABLY: To accommodate the high seat backs in most recreational kayaks, the Proteus features a high-back design with quick drying spacer mesh lower back.

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.
