NRS Rapid Rescuer PFD
Type III/V PFD. With 22lbs of flotation, adjustability to fit chest sizes from 30 to 56 inches, and all the features you will ever need in a rescue vest the NRS Rapid Rescuer can handle any situation. With box-stitched stress points and a 500-denier Cordura shell, the new NRS Rapid Rescuer is tough enough to handle any situation. Two huge front pockets stretch to hold anything from a GPS to a VHF. Three lash tabs on the front are great for a knife, whistle or anything else you need to keep handy. A d-ring, strobe holder, and tether attachment round out the attachment points on the front with a safety light stick holder on the back and reflective tape everywhere. Universal Plus sizing will fit chest sizes between 30 and 58 inches, with 7 adjustment points to ensure a secure fit.

Excellent fit adjustability and thoughtful design
This PFD was the model provided during my Swiftwater Rescue Tech course last year, and after using one during the course of instruction I became a big fan. I have been using NRS gear for many years and am always pleased with the quality, and this PFD does not disappoint. It fits very well for a vest with such a wide range of size adjustment, and the flotation is noticeably better than my usual paddling PFD. I purchased my own several months ago and would recommend this model to anyone looking for an excellent rescue PFD.

Good PFD but really just as it says - white water rescue jacket
This is very well made, but over kill for what I was looking for. My reason to try this pfd was for the outside pockets on vest. But, the jacket is heavy compared to std. pfds and with rescue tow belt wasn't necessary for what I had in mind. If looking for rescue jacket I would recommend. Ended up buying a Kokatat Msfit and excellent jacket with grt. pockets for my application - highly recommend.
