Today we are looking at the Stohlquist Edge PFD from Stohlquist Water Ways.  This PFD is a low profile vest that has a small “footprint” to help ensure you can move around easily.  The PFD is made of a ripstop nylon which seems to be very strong.    The quality seems like it would last a long time.

The specifications shows that it has a floatation of 15 pounds and 8 oz.  The floatation material is a soft foam that will not impact moving around.  The chest size will range from 33″ to 54″, which is a pretty good benefit.  The specifications state that it has a “Wrapture” shaped torso, but we arn’t sure exactly what that is.


  • “Wrapture” shaped Torso
  • Adjustable straps on the Shoulder, four side pulls, and a waist buckle
  • Low cut with a zipper entry
  • Large arm openings
  • Padded shoulder straps that are contoured to fit
  • Reflective 3M reflective accents

  • Mesh sides
