NRS CVest Type III


The NRS cVest Type III is a fantastic buoyancy aid for kayak touring, sea kayaking and open canoeing. The cVest features a high back to work in conjunction with high back seats found on many touring & sit on top kayaks.


The NRS cVest has been designed to have its floatation positioned high on the back and around the front with a mesh lower back panel which allows you to recline into your high backrest with ease.  The cut of the vest allows for easy movement especially in the shoulders and the eight adjustment points allow a snug fit to be achieved.
