Yak BLAZE PFD Life Jacket 50N


If you’re simply looking to get out paddling and have a great time on the water, the Blaze has it all in one neat package. Front zipped for ease of entry and with adjustable shoulders plus a high cut design for all round movement, it’s a super comfortable, super easy solution. We have trialled dozens of different PFDs over the years and find the YAK Blaze be the one of the most comfortable for paddle boarding.


  • Super light foam with slimline, high mobility cut for comfort
  • Adjustable shoulders and a single waist belt for a close fit
  • Front zip for easy donning
  • Internal key pocket 

Maritime New Zealand Rule 91.4, requires all paddle boarders to have a recognised PFD with a minimum 50kn of floatation.

Buoyancy aids providing only 50 N of force should only be used in sheltered waters when help is close at hand. They are not guaranteed to turn a person from a face-down position in the water.
