Hiko Jackpot PFD


SKU: N/A Categories: , ,


PFD designed for competitive racing in canoe slalom. Certified by ICF federation under the standard ISO 12402-5.

The Jackpot is an evolution step forward from the Saluki PFD. A portion of buoyant volume of both front and back panel is moved to external foam pillow; this pillow is inserted into a pocket in a spraydeck. The front panel is extremely thin and of low profile allowing the paddler to get closer to the gates. The foam of the back panel is also reduced and the design of the vest is adjusted to be more fitted. The external pillow is shaped to fit the space between the knees of a kayaker. It is connected to the body of the vest through flexible neoprene belt. The pocket on top of the spraydeck and the spraydeck itself are designed to compress the pillow below the level of the deck when inserted. During deep lean-backs, the pillow sits securely in the pocket and any motion of the kayaker is absorbed by the flexible belt; even when in full extension the belt keeps the vest in place and the external pillow remains below the deck. The Jackpot is equipped with a system of high-tension straps, flexible neoprene shoulder straps with tight stop, 3 pairs of adjustment straps on the sides one of them flexible for more accurate adjustment.

Do not use the PFD without compatible spraydeck. Do not modify! Do not reduce the buoyancy of the PFD!
