Salus’ Proto will keep you on top whether you’re creeking or play boating. This PFD has a contoured back pad for extra comfort and rib protection.
The Proto takes cues from Salus’ Torrent and Jazz whitewater PFDs, as well as borrowing elements of backpack design. One such innovation is the pocket on the back of the vest that stores and conceals a two-litre hydration bladder. Please click HERE for full article and video.
When looking for inspiration to create what is quite possibly the best white-water paddle vest, Salus looked to not only the Jazz and the Torrent, but also to the makers of backpacks. This versatile storage system provides convenient access for both right and left hand paddlers while offering multiple knife and lash tab locations. One of the more innovative features is the water bottle storage system that secures multiple size bladders and offers a tidy tunnel in the shoulder.
