Onyx has introduced the M-16, a new slender inflatable belt pack life jacket.
The ultra-sleek PFD is “ideal for stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, fishing, sailing, hunting and recreational boating” and stows compactly when not in use, according to the manufacturer. To inflate it, the wearer pulls an inflation activation cord. After use, the PFD has to be rearmed with the M-16 rearming kit, which is sold separately. $89.99.
