The world's first breathable life jacket. EV-Eight combines patented Airescape® technology with an ergonomic, high mesh back design, lightweight construction and a bluesign® certified, 100% recycled shell.


World’s first bluesign® approved, 100% recycled polyester shell.


Revolutionary Airescape® airflow system eliminates excessive heat and maintains a comfortable core temp.

I love everything about this life jacket. It is easily adjustable and super comfortable to wear for all day paddles. It also helps me stay cool on really hot days, and with it's adjustability, I can layer up for paddling on those cooler days.
