Guardian is PFD made for the most extreme terrains featuring all bells and whistles (the whistle is literal). It was developed in cooperation with professional paddlers and rescuers. The ides was creating a vest that is safe and super comfortable to wear - which is a safety feature itself.
Thanks to side-entry telescopic system it is very easy to take on and off. Thinner side panels are pushed into a tunnel located in the front panel; this way we eliminated bulging material on the side even when tightened to maximum. The side foam also protects sensitive oblique area from impact.
The front panel of the vest sits nice and low and back panel is cut deep around shoulder blades to allow maximum mobility of your arms.
To keep the vest where it should be we added triple adjustment on the sides and adjustable shoulders. Even when swimming in heavy waters the vest does not slide up. Guardian is equipped with safety strap that is firmly attached to the body of the vest and held in place by a system of tunnels.
Large front zipper pocket is equipped with hooks and loops to firmly secure smaller items such as keys, cellphone, etc.
An update from last version is a new high-volume high vis safety whistle. It is attached by flexible cord in a small pocket with anti-slippery inner wall preventing its free movement.
