Palm Nevis Buoyancy Aid Description: The Nevis PFD is the culmination of research from UCLan, design by Barney Caulfield and testing worldwide by Bren Orton. At its core is the Delta Fit adjustment system. Two wings that wrap your ribs, reducing pressure on your abdomen, helping you to breathe and increasing mobility. Set-up to go in five fluid steps, with fewer buckles (including new load tested aircraft grade aluminium hardware). The Nevis has the world’s first Piggyback adjustable quick release chest harness, improving upon the latest research, so that releasing your harness doesn’t affect the fit of your PFD. The Nevis sets a new standard in fit and safety.

PFD buoyancy label
A correct fit is more important than choosing the buoyancy category according to your weight. All Palm PFDs have buoyancy above the minimum floatation required for CE/ISO certification. PFD weight ranges are printed inside Palm PFDs on the ISO label.

Who Are Palm?

The year was 1979. The location: the Somerset coast. Inside a small shed with a leaky tin roof stood a figure, working hard and covered in a fine layer of glass fibre dust. This was Andy Knight, a man who wanted some better gear to take paddling, and had decided to make it himself. The sign on the door read ‘Palm Glass Fibre Mouldings Ltd’.

Just down the road from the shed, Andy can still be found working away on something new. The shed is now a little bigger, and many more figures toil away, but Andy and the team at Palm still work with the same determination and the same goal: making gear for paddlers. Palm Equipment International Ltd is based in Somerset, England. From here we supply the Palm apparel brand, kayaks from Dagger, Islander and Wilderness Systems, and canoes from Mad River Canoe – everything you need to take to the water. Palm and their associated brands are available through a worldwide network of shops, activity centres and distributors. Palm products are designed in-house and made by those who share their values.   See more buoyancy aids here : SHOP
