There is a reason many of the best boaters in the world and Appomattox River Company trust their lives to Stohlquist gear. A Stohlquist life vest feels great the first time on and more importantly, will keep you safe. All Stohlquist products are the result of a lifetime of hands-on paddling, entrepreneurial spirit, craftsmanship and design experience of the company founder and president, Jim Stohlquist. Each Stolquist model follows the lineage of 30 years of product innovation, refinement, incorporating the latest in raw material development and manufacturing know-how to provide customers with the best waterware available today.
Every Stohlquist PFD (Personal Flotation Device) is designed to meet the specific and unique fitting and performance needs of boaters.
