NRS Odyssey at Paddlesports Retailer 2018 Alex Traynor

Balancing storage with comfort, new PFD will go the miles

For touring paddlers, a lightweight and simple PFD will hold safety gear without taking up tons of space. NRS’s new Odyssey has a pocket for VHF and large cellphone. There are lash tabs for accessories are angled to be inline with shoulder straps so safety knife handle doesn’t stick out and snag safety lines. NRS used their thin back one inch foam to hug the wearer without getting in the way.
