Extrasport, a brand that has been synonymous with safety, performance and innovation for over thirty years, is pleased to introduce its new Baja personal floatation devices. Recreational PFDs based on the popular Chica platform, Extrasport Baja PFDs offer outstanding comfort, security and fit for canoeing, kayaking and power boating.

With designs for both men and women, the new Baja PFDs utilize a unique venting system with air channels and mesh spacers to allow proper airflow through the core of the vest. Mesh sides provide additional thermal regulation and superior range of motion, while multiple adjustment points along shoulders, sides and waist provide a comfortable custom fit.

“We developed the new Baja PFDs to address the increasingly sophisticated needs of our consumers,” said Sara Knies, Director of Marketing for Extrasport. “Foremost we built the new Baja around comfort and fit, but we added a few unique style and design elements to help them stand out from the crowd.”

Crafted with 100% PVC foam, the new Baja PFDs feature low profile styling in a streamlined center-zip design. Baja PFDs also boast a design feature originally developed by Extrasport, aptly named the Baja Back. This thin, broad, low-profile back section of the PFD accommodates seat backs and seat rests in today’s sit-on-top and rec-class kayaks providing extra comfort and reducing life vest ride-up while paddling.

Baja PFD’s will be available through authorized Extrasport dealers in October 2010. SRP: $129.99. For more information on Extrasport products please visit us on the web at www.extrasport.com.
