Good SAR PFD January 17, 2016
Reviewer: Paul W from Springville, UT United States  
I love NRS products.  Functional, straightforward.  For some reason, one of the iconic pictures in my mind of a river trip is blue NRS straps holding the oar frames on the rafts. Still, NRS can be pretty utilitarian looking.  I almost went for Kokatat's beautiful rescue vest, which has plenty of bells and whistles.  But that vest doesn't have any more floatation that most other vests.  Fine if you're mainly using it for paddling, but I'm using this for SAR, so I'm less concerned with bulkiness than with staying on top of swiftwater.  Got this for Christmas, on sale (which was a treat), and am looking forward to using it.  The PFD appears to have everything I need, and is very adjustable so it can be shared.
