The innovative Cross-Chest Cinch harness, found only on Stohlquist life jackets, offers the most unique fit of any PFD, by keeping the vest down & in place, to eliminate ride-up. The diagonal, front-to-back adjustment results in more mobility and a streamlined fit without being tight or restrictive. The “cinch” prevents and eliminates chafing on your chin and underarms caused by annoying vest ride-up.
Exclusive to Stohlquist life jackets, ergonomic WRAPTURE™ shaped torso utilizes reverse articulated foam & convex interior seams to provide a close, low profile fit. The foam contours to the natural shape of the body allowing for optimal comfort. PFDs with the WRAPTURE™ shaped torso provide the most secure and comfortable fit without the tight & restrictive feeling of conventional flat-foam construction.
