Getting into your kayak without a life vest is like driving your car without a seatbelt. Not only might you run into trouble and endanger yourself, but failing to take the proper precautions can also endanger others, including those who may come to your assistance. Fortunately, paddlers and rescuers can both breathe easier with the Kokatat Hustle PFD and the HustleR rescue PFD.
