Nookie Rockhopper Buoyancy Aid / PFD


Streamlined and ergonomic the unparalleled freedom of movement for a high floatation (66-74N) buoyancy aid makes this a comfortable yet safe choice. Failsafe shoulder straps with continuous webbing bar-tacked at both waist and shoulder.

SKU: N/A Category:


This over-the-head or side-entry buoyancy aid is exceptionally easy to fit with 6 points of webbing adjustment and one hand quick release buckles. The high floatation hinged ergonomic foam (66-77N) is comfortable with a slimline fit for unrestricted freedom of movement.

This buoyancy aid does not have to limit you to one discipline of paddlesport. Its generous low profile front pocket allows you to stow anything from a mobile phone in a waterproof case, a VHF radio, GPS device, carabiners and slings, credit cards, gloves, snacks… just not quite the kitchen sink. If you don’t fancy storing your rescue knife inside under the convenient horizontal slot, you can always use the front lash tab. The back hydration pouch has an extra mesh pocket with velcro closure ideal for flares.

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 back-up. The lower waist belt offers a ‘contact fit’ to the wearer and is easy to adjust with two pull-forward straps.

Built to last, this durable buoyancy aid is made from 500D Nylon CORDURA® with strong bar-tack reinforcement at critical points.
