    Awesome PFD
    Fitzfirequacker (Fitzgerald, GA) 5/7/2014 3:03 PM
    I just spent 3 days doing some inshore fishing in Florida's forgotten coast. I wore my chinook PFD the entire time. I was never uncomfortable. This PFD doesn't hinder casting or paddling at all. I actually forgot I had it on. I would deffinatly recommend the chinook as a PFD of choice!! The pockets are very useful and the attached lanyards were useful to attach my pliers and I actually hooked my keys to the one inside the pocket. I'm 6'0 285 paddle ocean SOT and the high back on the chinook never got in the way of the seat back and never rode up underneath my chin! Very high quality material including straps,buckles and zippers. All around awesome product.
    Great for Kayaking and Kayak Fishing

    This is a very comfortable and lightweight PFD. The pockets and tool holders come in handy. The high back is great for kayaks. My old life jacket was bulky in the back and was very uncomfortable in my yak! I did a review in the below link. I think mine is a little different that the one listed on Hook 1 but NRS is great! I would highly recommend this PFD if you are thinking about it.
