Hiko Sport are a company based in the Czech Republic. They had a fairly large stand at Paddle Expo and seemed to be constantly busy.
They seem to produce just about everything you could possibly need to spend a day or two on the water.
What really caught my eye on the GuardianPFD above was the fact that the D rings were solid. There was no split within them as seen on PFDs. Otherwise a pretty nice looking PFD.
They also had a new Polo PFD that gave the user full protection under the arms. The “wings” of the PFD sit one inside the other giving constant coverage.
A great design feature.
Everything seemed well constructed and mostly well thought out.
