  • STOHLQUIST Women's Cruiser Life Vest

    Designed for the female sea kayaker and sit-on-top paddler, Stohlquist's Cruiser is shaped for women, with a smaller cut, shortened torso, and supportive inner cups.

    Features/Benefits:

    • Wrapture design: ergonomically shaped torso contours to the natural shape of the body allowing optimal comfort—utilizes reverse articulated foam and convex interior seams to provide a close, low-profile fit
    • Women-specific, built-in, contoured supportive inner cups for comfort
    • Cross-chest cinch harness locks flotation elements in place and eliminates ride-up—prevents chafing on your chin and underarms
    • Diagonal, front-to-back cross chest adjustment results in more mobility and a streamlined fit without being tight or restrictive
    • Cool mesh at low back positions foam above high seat backs for comfort—ideal for today’s recreational touring and sit-on-top boats
    • Neoprene padded shoulders and lower back waistband for comfort when wearing a swimsuit
    • Ventilated shoulder and back pads; open sides for ventilation

          I like that it is designed to fit a women's body and its easy to adjust. I use it while kayaking and don't feel restricted at all.

            Easy to put on and adjust. Back of jacket is cut high so that the back of the seat of the kayak sits just below which makes for a comfortable ride.

                  This PFD FITS PERFECT. I read many reviews and tried on numerous PFDS. This, by far, was the most comfortable.

                  Comments about STOHLQUIST Women's Cruiser Life Vest:

                  This fits well with the high back of my kayak seat, but more importantly, it's contoured for a woman's shape so it's more comfortable than others I tried. The foam is a little bulky but it's soft, and with all the adjustment options, you can "snug it up". The two vest zipper pockets are very convenient, also. It may be warmer than the ventilated PFDs but the softer foam (with no underarm chafing)won me over.
