I needed a new PFD so after trying on a few different options I came home with a new Kokatat Naiad this weekend. It’s comfortable and fits well but it doesn’t come with any reflective accents that you commonly see on the shoulders, etc. of other PFDs, so I was wondering about adding some.
I’m not sure if it’s safe to glue/stick/sew anything to a PFD though. Has anyone done anything like this? Obviously, I don’t want to do anything that could degrade the materials or something.
The other option I thought of was making two small loops from a reflective fabric like a bike pants-holder strap and putting around the shoulder straps.
I found this reflective version of Tenacious Tape sold by Gear Aid and was wondering about using that. Looks like it could be added to both the PFD and the kayak since it’s sold to be applied to running gear, sneakers, bike helmets, etc.
Does anyone have any experience with this stuff?
Thanks in advance
