The NRS Ninja PFD is one of NRS's most popular PFDs for a reason. This feature-packed Type III PFD features many of the same ingredients as the NRS Zen Type V PFD in a low profile with a compelling price.

A refreshed look and roomier front pocket in the same low-profile construction keeps boaters loving the Ninja. The 16.5 pounds of flotation is concentrated into three small panels, so you have plenty of freedom to move without bulk in the way.

  • Soft PVC-free foam panels are shaped for comfort and the floating front panel follows your movements and doubles as a handwarmer on chilly days.
  • AirMesh fabric on shoulder straps and inner panels provide ventilation throughout the jacket.
  • Side-entry with six adjustment points for a customizable fit.
  • Redesigned front clamshell pocket features internal organization for essentials and the dual-entry zippers create a frosty-beverage-compatible pocket.
  • Features a lash tab and strap garages.
  • The Ninja is a great option for adults with short torsos or petite kiddos who have grown out of youth jackets' weight range.
  • The Ninja is a Type III, low-profile life jacket designed with 16.5 pounds of flotation and carries the US Coast Guard Certification, through testing by Underwriters Laboratories (UL).

Pro Tip

While the Ninja is intended for paddlesports like playboating and stand up paddleboarding, its compact size means that it also is a great PFD for adolescent paddlers. It's small enough that it won't restrict their movements when they are younger, and it has enough flotation that they won't grow out of it.
