The Nookie NKE Centre Zip PFD Buoyancy Aid is a fundamental part of the renowned NKE Centre Range and Nookie as a whole. It has a rich history within a vast array of well respected fantastic Outdoor Activity Centres.
Nookie’s very first incarnation of the NKE Centre Zip was launched over 20 years ago in 1998 when the first platform was designed, tested and approved under CE regulations. The brief was simple. A lightweight buoyancy aid that’s easy to put on by either the wearer or someone else (activity instructor) and comfortable to wear with substantial durability to withstand the trials and tribulations of a busy Outdoor Activity Centre environment.
Since then, new generations have seen incremental development that has kept its original core values at heart that are still true in the latest product available today. The improvements over the decades have included new developments in softer more flexible foam which make it more comfortable and an updated cut for more freedom of movement. They’ve seen an improvement in adjustment to make them easier to tighten by pulling the waist straps forward in response to customer demand. Shoulder straps are now a very clever adjustment that keeps the webbing tidy but still offers the fail-safe reassurance of a continuous piece that won’t fail even if a buckle happens to break in a freak accident. True to form though, the Nookie NKE Centre Buoyancy Aid still uses tough durable 500D Nylon Cordura, CE approved components throughout and bright clear colour coding for size. It’s easy to fit and adjust with a chunky YKK entry zip and easy to grab webbing straps even with cold wet fingers.
The popular NKE Centre Zip PFD is not only favoured because the colour coding is the entire buoyancy aid, assisting quick customer size choice for busy outdoor activity instructors. But we also offer a personalised printing service so your company can be featured on the back for clear company recognition and advertising.
