Fish Safe Off The Rocks
At Hobie, water safety is an integral part of our business and duty to our customers. With such a long history in the water sports industry, one of the things we know a lot about is PFD’s and water safety.
Rock fishing has been dubbed the most dangerous sport in Australia due to the associated high risks of injury and immersion. In Australia over 1.2 million people (8% of the population) participate in the activity annually. With these stats, we hope you will join us in making rock fishing safety your priority too.
The Hobie Rock Fishing Series of PFD’s come in a range of models and sizes to suit your budget. All have been rigorously tested and certified to the Australian AS4578 standard.
Are you required to wear a life jacket in your state?
Please visit your local jurisdiction Department of Primary Industries website to learn more about the regulations surrounding rock fishing in your area.
Hobie Manual Inflatable 150 Vest (Yoke) PFD
The Hobie Manual Inflatable 150 Vest (Yoke) is the lightest weight and comfortable PFD we have ever sold!
The Hobie Manual Inflatable 150 Vest (Yoke) is rated for offshore use while wearing foul weather clothing. The design is very lightweight, extremely cool and the newly designed collar folds down over the back of your neck and shoulders eliminating pressure on the neck and lower head.
The yoke is manually inflated (if required) by pulling a small cord that activates the replaceable CO2 cylinder located within the right side of the vest. The velcro secured valise allows for easy access to the cylinder for replacement and for servicing, or for additional manual inflation of the PFD after the manual cord has been activated.
