The MTI Adventurewear Helios inflatable PFD is the most popular inflatable PFD that MTI makes.  The MTI Helios inflatable PFD is very compact, light, comfortable, and reliable. The MTI Helios inflatable PFD inflates in seconds, giving you piece of mind whenever you’re on water that it’s only an arm’s reach away.  Other top-notch safety features of the MTI Helios inflatable PFD include front reflective tape panels, a single point indicator window, an adjustable waist for a comfortable fit and a whistle on a tether for added safety assurance. The MTI Helios inflatable PFD is wrapped in a comfortable and durable 100% Cordura shell. The MTI Helios inflatable PFD is easily recharged with an RK5 recharge kit.

Overall Review

My overall review of the MTI Helios inflatable PFD is 5 out of 5. This inflatable does everything it needs to do, plus it includes some bonus safety features that definitely come in handy in a rescue situation. The Cordura shell adds a very nice touch to the MTI Helios inflatable PFD, ensuring that this inflatable PFD will stand the test of time and still inflate at a moment’s notice. I was also very impressed by the comfort the MTI Helios inflatable PFD offered; an uncommon characteristic of your average inflatable PFD.
