Kokatat Introduces New Ronin PFDsMonday, 02 October 2006
A quality PFD is a crucial component to any water experience and just as a person’s adventure on the water may vary, so do their needs in personal floatation devices. Kokatat is pleased to introduce two models on their NEW Ronin platform, the Ronin (Type lll) and the Ronin Pro (Type V). These PFDs have a trimmed-down profile and unique internal harness, which provides a comfortable secure fit, full spinal protection and improved side protection, making the Ronin and Ronin Pro great choices for whitewater and ocean paddlers. A front-entry design, two pockets, and reflective accents make the Ronin PFDs user friendly, comfortable and a great addition to a paddler’s gear bag. Innovations such as reinforced adjustable, thermal molded foam padded shoulders with non-slip Hypalon® grip panels, stretch side panels, clip-on accessories, and superlative construction methods set a new standard in life vest design. Quick release chest harness meets or exceeds all USCG requirements for Type V Rescuer’s Harness. Both models will be made from GAIA™ PVC-free foam and are US Coast Guard and Transport Canada approved.
