Designed with your comfort in mind, West Marine’s Universal Paddle life jacket is an economical choice for your paddling adventures.
We built this life jacket to be comfortable and functional while kayaking or paddling. With a high-cut back to clear a kayak’s back support and large armholes that allow arms to rotate freely while paddling, the Universal paddle life jacket does not inhibit your movement. The V-neck design won’t crowd up against your chin while seated and the compact, low-profile design is light enough for all day wear. You will be securely fit in your life jacket with the 6 adjustable straps and heavy-duty zipper.
A mesh lower back design keeps you cool on hot days by allowing heat and perspiration to escape. Features such as neoprene padded shoulders for added comfort and an oversized front pocket for conveniently storing gear, help make this life jacket functional for your paddling adventures. When in need of an economical life jacket, let West Marine’s Universal Paddle life jacket keep you safe and comfortable on the water.
