Palm Nevis


Palm have pulled together all their research to create the latest design in Whitewater PFDs for the Nevis Buoyancy Aid. The new Nevis PFD has the Delta Fit adjustment system at it core, with two wings that wrap around your ribs to reduce pressure on your abdomen. This unique design gives the Nevis buoyancy Aid ultimate comfort, helping you to breathe and increasing mobility.


For maximum safety the shoulder straps and waist webbing through the Nevis PFD produce a world first Piggyback adjustable quick release chest harness. This new design, with Easy Glide straps means that it can be fitted in 5 quick and easy steps and releasing the Harness doesn’t affect the fit of your PFD.

The storage on the Palm Nevis has been maximised with a large Clamshell pocket filled with packing solutions. It also has two Velcro stash pockets and a dual entry zipped tunnel pocket. There are various attachment D-rings, internal pockets, knife sleeve and webbing clip-in points so you can organise all your equipment for easy access.


The Palm Nevis has all you need for white water kayaking, rafting, coaching and canoeing.
