Nookie Ranger II Buoyancy Aid (pfd)

Constructed in durable 500D Cordura®; the incredibly abrasion and tear resistant Nylon we have used for decades because of it's proven track record in and out of the water. This rugged buoyancy aid has bar-tack reinforced heavy duty nylon stitching so you know it won't let you down.
Nookie Ranger II
The canoeing, touring, kayaking and fishing buoyancy aid,
designed to have low-visual impact (more camouflage to you and me)

The Ranger II has numerous pockets and lash points which make it popular with fishing folk and canoeists a-like. There are four expandable, yet slimline, stretchy neoprene zipped pockets with easy-grab zip pullers for those days when your cold wet fingers don't quite grip properly. The streamlined finish with low profile pockets makes self-rescue much easier than in competitors bulkier buoyancy aids. 

The front neoprene pockets feature internal webbing and D-ring lash points to secure stowed items and the left pocket hides a secret mesh liner pocket with a velcro seal for those valuable emergency items, like credit cards. The back neoprene pockets both include long shockcord loops as secure attachment points if needed. 

Attach a knife or torch to the front lash tab to save space in your pockets for your essential chocolate bars. It's generous vertical back pocket with mesh divider allows you to use a 2L hydration pouch and store emergency flares at the same time.

We paid attention to detail when considering the fit and comfort of the Ranger II. It's easy to zip up with the easy-grip tab and chunky YKK® front zip. The neoprene padded, fully adjustable webbing should straps and four points of waist adjustment mean this buoyancy aid will always fit comfortably. The lower waist adjustment is located below the foam to give a secure contact fit for both comfort and safety.
