When you’re out at sea, safety is everything, and that includes wearing PaddleYak’s “Buddie”; a purpose-designed sea kayaking utility jacket. It features a useful pouch in front for emergency gear and essential crotch straps for added security when you end up in the water. The jacket is adjustable in six places and fits most adults. The jacket has been developed over a period of fifteen years. It is designed to carry essentilal items and may be worn by itself, or under approved and suitable pfd’s, or life-jackets, where the latter are available, or required by law. In the construction we have used the best materials available locally, including UV-resistant, acrylic canvas. The jacket comes in red and black. Note: This is not a PFD or Life Jacket. The price shown is ex Vat. If you want a standard registered PFD, it is available at R650ex Vat in S/M/L and XL.
