Glide Women's Life Jacket PFD

The Stohlquist Glide bridges the gap between a common fishing configuration and the recreational and day touring kayaker. This PFD distributes flotation over a wider area, giving you thinner profile for mobility and comfort, while reducing interference with today's taller seat backs. Pick up the pace with the Stohlquist Glide Lifejacket.

  • Ergonomic, women-specific torso comes with precurved WRAPTURE™ foam and built-in, contoured, supportive inner cups that wrap rather than crush
  • Graded Sizing™ means that each size offers a truly different cut of shape and foam (versus the common practice of simply using shorter or longer straps)
  • Consequently, paddlers will have less bulk along the side of their body when paddling and just the right amount of coverage in the event of a swim
  • 2 large expanding pockets will handle your gear
  • "Quick-draw" pocket beneath the right side pocket is perfect for getting your camera/phone out quickly to capture the moment
  • Thin back panel eliminates interference with high seat backs
  • Large front stash pocket for quick and easy access; secure, zippered front pockets
  • Cross-chest cinch harness for zero ride-up
  • 3M™ reflectivity on front and back

Cross-Chest Cinch

Cross-Chest Cinch

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.

Cross-Chest Cinch
WRAPTURE Shaped Torso

WRAPTURE Shaped Torso

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.
