The Riber Buoyancy Aids conform to the latest CE safety standards (ENO ISO 12402-5) and are an essential safety product for all water sports enthusiasts. Safety equipment is very important and we recommend that buoyancy aids are worn at all times by all paddlers, regardless of ability when out on the water. The Riber Buoyancy Aid has been designed with paddlers in mind so there is plenty of space under the arms for free movement. It has elasticated side panels to assist this also.

The Riber Buoyancy Aids include two chest pockets, one which contains a small waterproof mobile phone pouch. The other holds a whistle for gaining attention whilst in the water. It fits like a jacket with a zipper at the front. Additionally there are double waist buckles straps that are fully adjustable as well as adjustable shoulder straps. These shoulder straps have well located reflective strips for visibility.

We recommend that you size your Riber Buoyancy Aid so that its zips up snugly and then the straps are tightened to secure. You want to make sure that it will not be raised over your head if the shoulder straps are used to pull you out of the water. The sizes range from small to XX Large so please consult the size chart before purchasing.

  • We ask customers for their phone number as it is required by our couriers when we’re shipping large items such as kayaks, canoes or paddles. All contact telephone numbers are only used for delivery purposes and are destroyed after use. Failure to provide a contact telephone number at the time of purchase may result in delivery delays.
  • We aim to get your order shipped out on the same day if your purchase is completed before 10am, if not it will be the following day. We pay for a 24 hour delivery service but due to the large size of some of our boats there is a chance of delay. This can also depend on your location and other external factors such as bad weather, bank holidays and high demand periods like Christmas. For this reason we would always recommend allowing a few days for your item to arrive before contacting us but if you haven’t received your item within this time frame please get in touch with us. Please note deliveries of boats can take place up until 6pm weekdays only. We cannot offer weekend delivery.
  • Smaller items are usually dispatched the same day. All Royal Mail and Parcelforce parcels will come in your normal post and FedEx deliver weekdays only up until 6pm.
  • Your order will be updated with tracking information as soon as we dispatch and have the relevant information. However unfortunately we cannot offer tracking on larger items such as canoes and kayaks.

    Good value for money

    The buoyancy aids are really good. Very comfortable; waist, chest and shoulder straps easy to get right and make it secure and effective. No issues when we did the capsize drill with keeping afloat for any of us and did not get in the way when getting back in the kayaks. The small pockets are really useful and hold the whistle but also will easily hold really important things like the single finger Twix and other energy giving treats, which help keep the spirits up when the arms get a little tired. They do exactly what one needs, so very happy with them and the added bonus of a small waterproof pouch in each of them proved really useful for small objects that you want to keep dry, so another nice touch.

  3. Gary

    Cracking PFD, fits well, visible and really good quality. Zip front, 2 buckle straps to secure and adjustable shoulders. 2 pockets on the front, great for a whistle & rescue knife in one and a phone in the other (using supplied dry pouch). Crazy value for money and highly recommended!
