Special order items take longer to ship

We want to make extra-sure you realize that you've added a special order item to your cart. These items take a little longer to get to you because we have to order from the manufacturer first. The "Est. Ship Date" is the date we expect items to leave our warehouse... so add your chosen shipping speed to see when it will show up at your door.

Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better fit for Larger breasted woman! I have gone through several PFD's looking for one to fit me- 36DD. I also wantes a little style with the fit. So far this has fit the best and looks good too. I like the zippered pocket for my flip line and bineer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from decent Vest Vest is good quality and is about as slim as your going to get for a type 3 vest. Fits great however it does have a tendancy to ride up - find myslef pulling it back down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy again! This works great for stand up paddle boarding. It does not Restrict shoulder mobility with paddling and loveeee that it has a pocket for storage!
Date published: 2021-12-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit. Lots of room for activities Bought this for rafting mainly. Surprised the first time I went in the water at it's ability to keep me on top. Lots of room for rowing and the pocket is handy for things you need up front. I'm 5' 9" 150 and the small fits nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready for the Whitewater I bought the Ion to use when kayaking whitewater. My previous PFD was too bulky and inhibited full rotation of my arms/shoulders. This jacket fits snug, doesn't ride up with my thwart seat and allows plenty of room for upper mobility. It has two simple-to--use locking straps down by your waist. Getting the jacket on was different than others I've used, but is super simple once you've put it on once. Seems high quality, durable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good fit, decent floatation, and great for kayak PFDs last about 2-300 trips, and kids get big fast, The small Ion is great for a human that has just cleared the 90 lbs mark, it has a pocket for sunblock, knife and carabiner, and has a slim profiled without extra things that could be snagging hazards. It has a soft hand and is very comfortable on, and that makes the best kind of pfds (they only work when you wear them people)
Date published: 2021-07-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Comfortable I bought this for my husband, but decided to try it on myself. It's super comfortable. The foam is soft and there's plenty of clearance on the shoulders and sides so this will be great paddling. Nice size pocket in the front too. I'm now buying myself one. WIN!
Date published: 2021-07-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design and fit! NRS makes an amazing product! I did a lot of research on PFDs before deciding on the Ion and I couldn’t be happier. The design is such that you get a ton of arm and shoulder movement which is great for kayaking or stand up paddling, but at the same time you feel safe and secure. The zipper pocket is a great feature as well. Overall the NRS Ion is a comfortable and secure PFD that has a really attractive design, it’s a PFD that you’ll actually want to wear!

 What is the difference between the interest paper and the ion? Other than $30 in two zippers instead of one? 

Asked by: Mags
Hi there, thanks for your question! I assume you are referring to the Vapor PFD. The panels are a little different in design and the outer nylon on the Ion is more rugged. Hope this helps!

what is the plastic bracket on the chest? Looks as thought is for webbing to feed through.

Asked by: Rossb
hIya Rossb, good question! It is a lash to tab hold your rescue knife. I suppose you could slide webbing through or latch a keychain to it. Hope this helps!

HOW to MEASURE
CHEST: With arms down at your sides, measure around the largest part of the chest, generally across the nipples.

WAIST: Measure around natural waistline, allowing tape measure to sit comfortably.

NRS FIT GUIDE
FORM FIT: Next-to-skin fit for easy layering and efficient performance.

SEMI-FORM FIT: Fits close but not tight for comfort and layering ease.

RELAXED FIT: Full cut for freedom of motion and layering underneath.

NOTES from NRS
Use a flexible cloth measuring tape for measuring. If you do not have one, use a cord or strap and transfer that to a tape measurement.

Measure in your street clothes or base layers. NRS sizes technical outerwear pieces like drysuits and dry tops to include room for layering underneath.

With wetsuits, your weight is the best "tiebreaker" when measurements cross sizes. Remember, wetsuits need to fit snugly to be efficient at excluding water and holding in warmth.

In looser fitting garments like drysuits, splash jackets, etc, look first at the height, then at the weight for a tiebreaker.

Stand up straight when measuring, with your body relaxed.
