Palm Extrem

The Extrem has been the flagship white water buoyancy aid from Palm for many years. During this time the Extrem has undergone many alterations and updates to ensure it is at the forefront of PFD technology. This has resulted in the Extrem being extremely safe and easy to wear on all grades of white water. This re-design includes the transition from plastic buckles to aircraft grade, load tested aluminium adjustment buckles and the introduction of UCLan's patented adjustable chest harness to ease the set up of safety.

Palm are proud that the Extrem is the original buoyancy aid wrap design, allowing to be pulled on as a vest, or using the side entry system and wrapping the front across the paddlers torso for a secure, comfortable fit.

With all the top-end features expected on a white-water PFD, the Extrem has multiple pockets allowing for plenty of rescue kit to be carried on the person. The zipped primary pocket features daisy-chain webbing on the interior to organise kit. The retention of the internal rear pocket makes this PFD perfect for carrying documents, money or a hydration bladder on long summer days.
