Functional and comfortable PFD that you can wear all day on the water. Nice slim design and inflates easily with the CO2 when extra floatation is needed.

Absolutely fantastic ! As a very Plus Woman in the Tata department getting back in a boat with giant flotation on top of what you have is darn near impossible and inflatables burst under that kind of pressure. This design is much slimmer and streamline but also has inflation if you need that extra lift in an emergency.

This lifejacket is a game changer. I have a variety of lifejackets (some would say too many), including excellent jackets like an NRS Ninja. But this Khimera is quite different. There are no big stiff plates of floatation in it - as a result it is way more flexible and moves with you when paddling like no other jacket. By comparison, it feels thin and isn't in the way at all. It covers a bit more surface area than the Ninja (so you might notice that in really hot weather) but not much more. I really like the idea of having a bit of flotation boost but still being able to slide over a gunwale without obstruction, yet if I get in trouble I can pull the ripcord and have a lot more flotation instantly. The front pocket is just big enough to hold a large phone (mine is a Pixel 3XL). The extra slot to carry a spare CO2 cartridge is a nice touch too. I love this jacket, well worth the money.

I took the Khimera out kayaking and loved the low profile foam vest which offered ease of movement. I pulled the manual pull tab to test the inflation functionality and it really worked well and I still could move easily. I feel safer knowing I can always get extra buoyancy if I need it. When pressing the deck and re-entering my kayak, I just released some air from the oral inflation tube which really helped get my centre of gravity down making it safer and easier to get back in. I like the option of the oral inflation to customize the buoyancy too! Great all round vest that I can also take fishing or standup.
