Gear Preview: Harmony’s Flex Fit PFD

Ever wonder what the flotation inside your PFD is made from? Inexpensive PVC foam is the most common, but it contains harmful chemicals and is difficult to recycle, making organic kapok fibers or CFC- and PVC-free Gaia foam better choices for eco-conscious paddlers. Also free of halogens and phthalate ester plasticizers, recyclable Gaia foam limits the potential leaching of hazardous oils and chlorine into our waters. Along with the environmental upside, we like Gaia’s super-soft feel and easy-clean upkeep. The Flex Fit PFD uses slim back and segmented front Gaia foam panels for a stylish vest with a comfy, body-hugging fit. Touring kayakers will appreciate the large zippered chest pocket and reflective piping for high visibility. Bonus: Harmony parent company, Confluence Outdoor, recycles or reuses all scrap material.
