life jacket for seakayak

So the Lotus life jackets with the mesh back panel look well made, has anyone tried them? And not sure if I should go with buckles or a zipper in the front for closing the jacket’s front.


Have a Sea Sherman
and really like it

I Have A Lotus
I have not tried a lot of differant paddling PFDs so have little to compare it with. However, the Lotus has held up well over the past two years and is comfortable. Mine has a zipper to close the float part and a buckle to close the belt underneath. The zipper is fine but have learned to occationally put a little lube on it.

Happy Paddling,
