Whether its river running, touring or even stand up paddling it can be useful to have a low profile PFD which just gets on with the job of keeping you safe without shouting about it! The NRS Ion has a low form factor 6 panel design which wraps around you, moves with you and fades into the background leaving you free to just paddle. It's made from tough rip stop nylon and had the NRS patented Cool Flow System to provide ventilation in hotter weather or when you are working hard. But don't think its all about work! There are soft padded shoulder straps and fleece lined hand warmer pockets for comfort as well as easy access side buckles for simple donning.


To finish off, the NRS Ion has slim line zipped pockets, reflective accents for safety and of course a lash tab for knife. An ideal BA for those who let their paddling do the talking. Being lower profile at the front also allows easier re-entry onto SUP's or SoTs.
