Nookie NKE Centre Buoyancy Aid / PFD


This over-the-head, entry-level buoyancy aid vest is exceptionally easy to fit with 6 points of adjustment. Colour coded shoulder & waist webbing to indicate size. Available in 4 sizes with floatation from 50N to 75N, UKCA & CE (EU) ISO 12402-5:2020 approved. Made with tough 500D Nylon CORDURA® with environmentally friendly non PVC Gaia® foam this buoyancy aid is built to last.


This addition to the Nookie NKE range has been developed in association with professional outdoor activity providers due to popular demand.

The high floatation hinged ergonomic foam is comfortable and held in place with 6 points of webbing adjustment to offer a secure fit.

Built to last, this durable buoyancy aid is made from 500D Nylon CORDURA® & environmentally friendly non-PVC Gaia® foam with strong bar-tack reinforcement at critical points. Every single component has been chosen for its toughness and durability in a continuous hard-use environment.

Colour-coded shoulder and waist webbing make this easy to identify the size, especially useful in a busy outdoor activity centre.

The padded shoulder adjustments are smooth and designed using a clever system – the webbing adjusts using one continuous length so the shoulder strap remains in place as a fail-safe backup. The lower waist belt offers a ‘contact fit’ to the wearer and is now even easier to adjust with two pull-forward straps.

The NKE Centre Vest Buoyancy Aid has a UKCA & CE (EU) ISO 12402-5:2020 Certification with over 50N of approved buoyancy on all sizes.
