Hello everyone,

I am new to this message board, so please bear with me if this has already been addressed in a previous thread. I am looking to outfit my team mates with a comfortable, non-restrictive PFD, ideally suited for the dragon boat stroke. Let's face it, the life vests they offer at festivals have seen and smelled better days and are not conducive to a truly great form. Which model or manufacturer would you recommend? The price, around $70-100 max.

Looking forward to your replies.

I find the Stohlquist WedgeE PFD (Unisex) a great lifejacket and it is affordable at MEC for $95. The Kokatat Orbit Tour PFD (Unisex) is not bad, but at $135 was a little expensive for me.

I agree with others and would suggest having your team members buy their own ... different body types, preferences and what they can afford will differ. I would keep team dollars to use for training, regattas, etc.

I sell Salus Marine Eddy Sport/Flex PFD's as well as use one myself.
It's by far the best i've used in the last 10 years. Offers a great range of motion with little restiction.
