Gear Preview: Kokatat’s Maximus PFD

This slimmed-down design offers all the essential safety features in a vest that won’t slow you down. Simplicity is the key here: three adjustment straps on each side and two on the front let us customize the fit for ultimate ease of movement without fumbling with any unnecessary moving parts. Our favorite feature is the easy side-entry system. We’ve been using a pull-over vests for years and love that there’s no extra bulk, but with the Maximus, Kokatat has managed to keep it trim with three easy clips on one side. Having the whole side open up means you can dial in the fit once and throw it on and off without any additional adjustment. The wide shoulder straps are comfortable and let the front flotation move with your torso on each stroke so you’re not restricted by anything that’s fixed in place. A lash tab and gusset- ed chest pocket with an internal lash tab round out the Maximus design—no extras that will get in the way of fast, fluid strokes.
