Thin Vent

A unique approach to designing recreational jackets in which the back panel is made of a super thin foam, allowing the paddler to fully recline in the tallest of seats. A thin mesh strip along the spine helps keep you cool on the hottest days.

  • Great Kayak Fishing Life Vest

    August 27, 2021

    I have been using this vest for several years when kayak fishing. I like the pockets! One carries my iPhone and another my fishing license and I.D. On molded clip space, I clip my Anglr Bullseye. The vest is very comfortable and durable.

  • Perfection

    This pfd is amazing. Pockets where you need them. Slim back for high back seats. Light weight. Breathable fabric. Plenty of room. I'm 6'3" @ 260 lbs and went with the M/L. Fits like a glove, and still some room for the sweater months.

  • Boundary Waters Canoe Trip

    February 23, 2018

    Bought two Ronny life-vests for a canoe/hiking trip in the Boundary Waters (Northern Minnesota). We concentrate on light weight, the Ronny was perfect. Didn't even notice it while paddling. We went in June, the vest was not hot. The vents worked well. The pockets were perfect for maps, fishing lures and our Go-Pro camera. Liked it so much I bought another one for this years Boundary Waters trip.

  • Ronny and Linda

    March 14, 2016

    We believe these are some of the best PFDs for high back seats as the thin back allows all paddlers to comfortably rest against the seat back without being shoved forward. The Ronny and Linda are very comfortable and highly adjustable to accommodate Summer paddling and Winter padding with layers.

  • Good kayaking PFD

    September 13, 2021

    I like the vented back and the pocket that can hold a small water bottle (250ml). Most importantly, it is comfortable for kayaking, and the small pockets hold useful items and are not in the way.

  • Ronny PFD review

    July 22, 2018

    The Ronny is a great design and works wonderfully for kayaking. It allows for unhindered arm movements while paddling. However, it does have one glaring deficiency. The snap button on the flap pocket is of very poor quality. My button snapped in half after only three trips and unsnapping it maybe twenty times.
