Introducing the Vaikobi VX Race PFD, designed specifically for active sailing and maximum comfort in a sleek minimal profile.

Working with our team of legendary sailors, the VX PFD has been carefully designed to meet key weight and profile requirements to ensure maximum comfort and performance.

So light and comfortable, you will not even notice you are wearing it! Form-fitting super-soft foam creates an extremely low profile fit enabling fantastic agility.

The internal technical woven liner makes it incredibly comfortable to wear and wicks moisture away from the body.

The Scooped neck design further reduces bulk and increases flexibility.

Key Performance Features:

  • Low and elongated profile for minimal restriction
  • Neoprene shoulder and side panels for maximum comfort
  • Scooped neck
  • Super soft woven wicking liner
  • Form fitting super soft foam panels to move with your body
  • VX Print Grip to stop riding up
  • Adjustable side straps for firm fit
  • Secure Zip Chest Pocket to store key items
  • ISO 12402-5 - Full European Standard Conformity
Experience the VX Race difference. The most comfortable race buoyancy aid out there.
