NRS Chinook Fishing PFD Reviews
This product has held up…
This product has held up well over the past two years. Flotation is good and there are plenty of pockets to stash your gear. None of the pockets are big enough to hold a large smartphone though the smaller 5.5 inch devices might be able to squeeze into the bottom pocket.
The only thing I wish it included was a water bladder pouch. A decent product for a decent price.

I have owned this PFD for two years at this point. Other than a couple of stains, it still looks great. All zippers and straps are working perfectly. It is fully adjustable for height and girth. They are offered in several colors to choose from, I picked the hi-vis orange due to safety reasons. Very happy and satisfied with the product, I never leave shore without it!!

I weight 200 lbs and purchased the large and this PFD fits me like a glove. It has ample storage where I need it, anchors for clips and tools and the back flotation rests perfectly on the top of my kayak seat like it was made for kayak fishing. This may not be the PFD for whitewater but if you're angler, it's hard to find a more convenient, durable and comfortable PFD.
