Hiko Swift

Weighing from just 395g, a light, whitewater ready PFD. Features impact protection and good tear resistance at minimalistic design.


A light, whitewater worthy PFD, the 395g Swift is constructed from light and strong nylon and solid foam. This non-absorbent fabric sheds water like a duck which keeps it much lighter in high volume conditions compared to other PFDs (from codura), and quicker to dry too.

The Swifts shoulder straps are rated for loads enough to haul out trapped swimmers or dragging unconscious paddlers to safety. The low profile and full impact protection on the lower back makes this a genuine whitewater PFD and keeps the jacket securely in place as you move (correct size provided).

Originating from the slalom/competiotion market, simple and functional, this makes the Swift suited to whitewater packrafting as well as general touring. 

Please note

The Swift does not include a quick-release harness for active rescues such as towing a swimmer. For group guiding operations we recommend the Hiko Cinch harness. 

The Swift does not feature a zipper and is pulled over the head.

We recommend lower sizing for better fit.
