New in the Zhik range for small boat sailing, frostbiting and watersports is the USCG certified version of their popular performance P1 PFD (personal flotation device).

Designed for active sailing and watersports, the smooth race-cut enables unrestricted athletic movement, with cut away arm and neck openings to reduce bulk. Stretch neoprene shoulder panels mean the vest moves with you as you stretch, and will provide cushioning if worn under a trapeze harness.

The P1 PFD has a close fit and clean-cut outer, with no unnecessary straps or buckles. Internal non-slip waist grips, together with an elasticated waist, side zip and adjustment buckle, create a sure fit and prevents the PFD riding up when sailing or floating in the water.

A generous Velcro adjusted front storage pocket keeps everything you'll need to hand. The P1 PFD is classified as UCSG Type III and is EN393-50N certified for your safety afloat.

Available in unisex adult and kids sizes, in black or cyan blue.


  • P1 PFD USCG approved
  • Adult unisex US$125.00
  • Kids US$99.99
Available from Zhik US dealers or online at
