Before buying, try several different lengths to find what feels most comfortable. Click here to see a chart that makes a good starting point.

PFDs (Life jackets)
It is essential to wear a proper fitting, approved personal floatation device (PFD) when kayaking
A PFD helps keep you afloat and offers upper body protection against obstacles both above and below the water’s surface. Choose a PFD that provides a snug, yet comfortable fit. All Mission PFDs come with six adjustment points - four on the side and two at the shoulder - to provide a proper fit. PFDs with a Type 2 (ASSA 1499) Safety Standard have the highest safety rating designed specifically for moving around.
