The Sea to Summit Foam Paddle Float is a wonderful safety tool to have on hand whenever you are venturing further from shore. If you’ve ever found yourself in the precarious position of being capsized, then you already know just how difficult it can be to get back into your cockpit. Getting your kayak turned upright is simple enough, but getting back in from the water can prove to be a tricky scenario; even for advanced kayakers. The Sea to Summit Foam Paddle Float will make the job easier by allowing you to use your paddle like a ladder for reentry.
The Sea to Summit Foam Paddle Float is one of the fastest floats to deploy because it requires no inflation. This means that you can simply grab the float, slip it onto your paddle blade, and you’re ready to reenter immediately following a capsize. Made from incredibly durable 420D nylon, the Sea to Summit Foam Paddle Float will stand up to the elements and be there for you in the event a rescue is required.

I would rate my review of the Sea to Summit Foam Paddle Float as a 4 out of 5 stars. The design and quality of this float makes it a great choice for kayakers of any paddling level, and it is highly visible at night which is a major bonus. However, I prefer inflatable paddle floats because they take up a lot less space and weigh virtually nothing which can be a big deal when touring. That said, there are times where frigid water conditions make a foam paddle float more ideal because of the speed in which it can be deployed, so this would definitely be my first choice for an arctic paddling excursion.
