Mission Commercial multi-fit PFD

$127 Retail price $150 + freight

Two sizes: Child 4-10 and  Adult XS – XXL

The Commercial PFD (multi-fit) is an upgraded, heavy-duty version of the popular Freetime model.  It has been optimised for adventure tourism operators, hire fleets and outdoor education use.

The front zip and generous size adjustment ensure that this PFD can be fitted quickly and securely. Soft buoyancy foam makes it incredibly comfortable.

The tough 600D fabric is gold colour in low wear areas giving high visibility on the water, while the black fabric prolongs the life of areas that are prone to getting dirty and stained from sunscreen, etc. No pockets either, so that forgotten sweets can’t leave a sticky mess.
