These PFDs pass ISO 12402-5 (watersports) and ISO 12402-6 (paddlesport) standards. The majority of our PFDs have up to 20% more buoyancy than the ISO/CE standard and our whitewater models have up to 40% more buoyancy than the 50 N required. Palm were the first to make PFDs to these ISO standards, as part of their drive to make safer gear for everyone. These PFD's are Level 50 - Similar to Type 2 Life Jackets.
These are buoyancy vests designed to support the wearer in the water, but without the neck support required to keep the wearer's head face-up and above the water if unconscious. They are made using high-visibility colours and in comfortable styles.
