The Palm Kaikoura is our favourite top-end touring and sea kayaking buoyancy aid. Wind‚ waves and exposure – open water can remind you how small we are. The Kaikoura is perfect for tackling big adventures‚ whether you're using one blade or two. Flex Fit buoyancy foam is the final word on comfort and safety. With carefully placed pockets and stowage‚ the Kaikoura will carry everything you need‚ close to hand – even when conditions get rough.

The Palm Kaikoura features 2 large front pockets, with twin zips allowing them to hold a vhf radio. Multiple smaller pockets let you arrange items so you know exactly where they will be when you need them. The soft and comfortable Flex Fit foam contours around your body, removing the bulk from in front of you while retaining a high level of buoyancy. Perfect for any long distance paddling, whether it's in a sea kayak, touring kayak or canoe. Come and try the Palm Kaikoura on in-store today to really feel how it feels when it's on!
