The Glide Inflatable Waistbelt PFD from Palm Equipment is designed for users such as those using a SUP who don’t want to wear a conventional PFD. We had a look at the Glide PFD late last year and were pretty impressed by its design and reusability.

Glide Inflatable Waistbelt PFD

This waist belt PFD conceals a 100 N floatation bladder which can be instantly inflated when you need it‚ at the pull of a cord. Perfect for stand up paddle boarding‚ the Glide has a handy phone sized pocket and D-ring clip points. Sitting comfortably out of the way when not in use‚ the Glide fastens securely over your head once it’s inflated.

The PFD costs around £72 and a recharge kit is around £15.
