Kayak life jacket

Life jackets are the most commonly used for water sports activities around the coast, as they provide the necessary buoyancy combined with great freedom of movement. This also applies to life jackets for kayaking, as this activity has specific requirements for mobility and manoeuvrability. For example, it's important that it doesn't lock the person in place when they need to make a roll in the water, which is a safety requirement for kayaking.

Why you should choose a kayak life jacket

A life jacket for kayaks is the most important piece of safety equipment you take out on the water. It's your guarantee that you'll be able to stay afloat in the unfortunate event that you end up in distress. Fortunately, this rarely happens and with the right technique, it's mostly a safety guarantee, which naturally places demands on its comfort.

That's why a life jacket for kayaks doesn't take up as much of your body as other life jackets. This is mainly because it shouldn't sit up between your ears when you wear it, but should sit naturally on your body so that it doesn't bother you. For this very reason, they are shorter so they don't get pushed up by the edges of the kayak.

In addition, a life jacket comes with a variety of other features, such as pockets and towlines. We always recommend taking a phone with you on the water so you can call for help, and if your kayak life jacket doesn't have a waterproof pocket, you can always use a waterproof phone holder. It can also be combined with equipment and waterproof headphones so you can also listen to music while you're out on the water.

Is there a difference between different swim vests and life jackets

The biggest difference between the different types of swim vests is usually the length of the design itself. They will all have a buoyancy of between 50N and 65N, which also means that they mostly function as buoyancy aids - also known as buoyancy aids. They should therefore also be considered as assistive aids, as their buoyancy is still dependent on you mastering the most basic swimming techniques.

A life jacket, on the other hand, is designed to keep you afloat and turn you onto your back, whether you are conscious or not. That's why many of them also have a neck collar, and they are often very bulky and offer limited mobility. Therefore, they are also not suitable for water sports, as they would prevent you from moving as freely as possible.

This is why a life jacket is also not very suitable for kayaking or canoeing, as it becomes too difficult to paddle properly and can create a dangerous situation if it tips over and you roll around in the water. A swim vest for SUP will also not be optimal, as they are somewhat longer and will therefore also restrict your movements.
