  • I love the Ringo!

    April 19, 2019

    I have a Palm Rescue PFD that I really like. It is, however, a bit bulky. When I saw the Ringo and its side Zipper, I decided to give it a chance. My Palm has 4 little pockets in which I store my knife, ear plugs, whistle and so on. Unfortunately, I can never remember what is where. The Ringo has one pocket with multiple compartments. Moreover, I don't have to latch my carabiner to anything, I just store it under the front pocket. Easy to get to and not in the way when getting ready to go out. Finding my stuff is easy. The key to this PFD, however, is the comfort level. It is not as bulky as my Palm and, therefore, much more comfortable. I barely know that it is on!

  • Great PFD!

    July 19, 2018

    I recently purchased this PFD to replace my aging Green Jacket, which is also a fantastic PFD. What drew me to the Ringo was the lighter weight, and the front entry, while still being rescue harness compatible. While the added safety and rescue features of the Green Jacket are great when needed, they do add weight, and in my case, I just need the tether capability. The Ringo is light, fit is very comfortable and easily adjustable. I did add a harness, which is easy, and very well integrated (and also very easy to remove on days that I don't need it). Great PFD, highly recommended!
