Airbelt Kayak Buoyancy Aid

Regular price £98.95

A Must-Have Kayak Essential

Perfect for kayakers who find traditional personal flotation devices get in their way while paddling, the Red Original Kayak Buoyancy Aid is designed to be worn inconspicuously around the waist. Though compact, the PFD Airbelt is quick and easy to deploy should the need arises. All the wearer has to do is pull out the inflatable bladder, place it over their head, and inflate it by pulling the inflation cord. Once safe, the wearer can re-arm the buoyancy aid simply by replacing the 16g CO2 cylinder.  

Available in grey, purple, and blue, the Airbelt Kayak Buoyancy Aid is an ISO certified piece of safety gear and is recommended wearing for amateur and experienced kayakers alike.

Stay Safe On Lakes, Rivers & At Sea

The Red Original Personal Flotation Device is ideal for your next touring adventure. Whether the sea is choppy or the river is calm, this kayak PFD was specially designed not to get in its wearer's way whilst paddling but is ready to go at the drop of a hat should they ever need it.

Quick and easy to deploy, the Red Original Kayak PFD is ISO certified and should be considered an essential safety device for kayakers of any and all levels of ability. Its compact design is significantly less bulky than a traditional buoyancy aid, which allows wearers to retain maximum freedom and comfort whilst paddling. What's more, there is a large water-resistant storage compartment at the front, which is perfect for storing essential items that need to be easily accessible. There are also D-ring clip points that serve as attaching sites for other items, expanding the use of this Airbelt.

Deploying the Airbelt Kayak PFD is remarkably straightforward; simply pull the inflatable bladder out of the pocket and place it over your head, then inflate by pulling the inflation cord, no adjustments required. Once deployed, this kayak PFD can be re-armed by replacing the gas cylinder with another 16g CO2 cylinder, allowing it to be used multiple times. Perfect for a casual kayak down a river. 

Suitable for people 40-130kgs
