NRS Zephyr Inflatable PFD

The NRS Zephyr is the minimalist PFD SUP paddlers want!


  • This lightweight self-inflating PFD provides 15.5 lbs. of flotation and meets U.S. Coast Guard requirements. (See Note below.)
  • The compact, adjustable ripstop nylon waist pack stays out of your way for SUP or surfing.
  • A simple tug on the cord instantly inflates the PFD with pressurized C02 gas.
  • Unlike many other self-inflating life jackets, the flotation chamber stays around your waist.
  • Simply rotate the belt until the chamber faces forward, pull the inflation cord and secure the attachment strap over your head.
  • A manual mouth valve backs up the CO2-powered inflator.
  • The bag’s clear window lets you check the inflation system for readiness.
  • Includes 16 gram CO2 cartridge. NRS CO2 Re-Arming Kit sold separately.

Note: This PFD is certified by the US Coast Guard as a Type V PFD. However, it meets Coast Guard requirements for Type III PFDs when it is worn. In other words, you have to have the pouch secured around your waist for it to qualify as a required flotation device.
