Hobie Manual Inflating PFD

$129.00 inc GST

The Hobie Manual Inflatable 150 Vest (Yoke) is a lightweight and comfortable inflatable PFD that is perfect for kayaking as well as general boating and fishing. The PFD’s design does not inhibit movement or feel bulky to wear, while the manual activation of the inflation cylinder ensures the PFD only inflates when you want it to.

These jackets are available in 3 colours (ash-grey, navy and red), are suitable for people 40kg and over and will fit up to size 5XL.

The Hobie Manual Inflating 150 Vest (Yoke) is the lightest weight PFD in Hobie’s lineup, making it perfect for anyone who values comfort and mobility. The newly designed collar folds down over the back of your neck and shoulders, eliminating pressure on the neck and lower head, while the mesh yoke back strap helps prevent the collar from riding up the back of your neck.

The 20% wider collar provides increased comfort, while the folding collar design ensures that you can wear the vest for long periods without any discomfort.

The Hobie Manual Inflating PFD Vest is manually inflated (if required) by pulling a small cord that activates the replaceable CO2 cylinder located within the right side of the vest. The velcro-secured valise allows for easy access to the cylinder for replacement and servicing or for additional manual inflation of the PFD after the manual cord has been activated.

This vest also comes with a variety of features, including an easy access storage pocket, clip inside pocket, PFD safety whistle, headphone rubber port hole, 25mm D-ring for switch killer tether, accessory attachment straps, interior pocket, and UML Pro Sensor with an armed status indicator. The self-service feature and Cylinder Re-Arm Kit (available separately) make maintenance a breeze.
