Listing #: 461437913
Up for auction is a virtually brand new condition Stearns VR swift water rescue pfd. Designed specifically as a swift water rescue pfd it boasts such features as "Bright red outershell for daytime visibility and SOLAS-grade 6755 3M Scotchliteâ„¢ Reflective Material on front and back for nighttime visibility. Waistbelt on foam helps prevent ride-up. Front and back fold-out side panels provide protection for a full range of sizes, but can be kept folded in when not in use for added ventilation. Thin, low profile design ensures cushioning while permitting unrestricted movement. Stainless steel shoulder adjustment hardware allows for custom height adjustment. Optional Auxiliary Tether System supports up to 1,100 lbs. when properly integrated with the VR Vest cam-lock buckle release system. Includes 4'L nylon webbing, heavy duty carabiner and stainless steel O-ring. Allows for right or left shoulder placement." Designed to provide extra shock absorption and up to 25 lbs. of buoyancy. USCG Approved Type V. Virtually brand new, I would estimate that I have had this on the river less than 8 times. Comes with the rescue cows tail which was an extra I had to buy. Cost me originally around $450NZD around 2 years ago. Only selling as I don't use anymore. Current set up worth $306.20USD (http://www.labsafety.com/stearns-vr-versatile-rescue-vest_24
547442/). Does not come with knife, whistle or rescue strobe as seen in picture. Does come with swiftwater rescue technician patch however. Really nice vest and will be sad to see it go. Just to note, the releasable webbing has been shortened. At the moment when it is on me there is around 10cm of extra webbing. My chest circumference is around 86cm so would fit up to a 96cm chest or smaller. However in saying this, the quick release webbing is removable so a new full size one could be ordered from the manufacturer or a new one could be made/purchased in New Zealand. Comes with removable crotch straps to prevent riding up.

Feel free to ask any questions. Wont be able to find cheaper
