Hey mate, what are you looking for? More impact protection or more floatation?

I have the mystic block vest. It's great extra floatation if required. Haven't needed the extra landing protection as my jumps aren't that high but it's bulkiness feels like good protection if needed.

Natural one's! They go with boardie's over your steamer in summer in FNQ!

What happened to kiting being an extreme sport not a extremely soft kook sport?

Forward WIP do double duty as an impact vest and PFD. They also don't ride up and are light and comfortable even when wet. Addd bonus are front and rear pockets. Had mine for a couple of years and it gets a pounding kiting and sailing.
