I’m looking for an old style canoe vest with high flotation, something like the Extrasport Swiftwater Ranger. Anyone have one of these vests or something like it? Are they comfortable? I have to many shorty kayak vests and would like some input on good high float canoe vests.
How about a SEDA?
Piragis has them in their catalog. I’ve been considering one for myself as I’ve read good reports about their comfort and dudrability.
I use an MTI Cruiser. Regular canoe vest, not high floatation. Comfortable.
Thanks I have the MTI
got it with a boat I bought but…it is to small, a very nice vest though. Close to the Extrasport but not as long.
Can You Wait a Month or So?
I have the Extrasport B-27 AND an old Seda and when I pick up the boat, you can try 'em both out. They're both very comfortable, the Extrasport would get the nod for any paddling where I EXPECT a swim. Here's pics of the two. This way you can TRY before you BUY. WW
Sure thing Terry
I’ll be glade to wait, did you recieve my email about Pymatuning?
I saw an old style hi-float vest in
Cascade River Runners catalog. An improved version of the old Extrasport. No flotation on the shoulders, so you can turn your head and see. I think it had a 'modern’strap and fastener instead of a tie. I’ll see if I can find the catalog and give you more specifics.
