Stephen Forster lived life to the fullest and loved to share his passion and optimism both on and off the river. He truly enriched and inspired all who met him. In honor of Stephen Forster and his spirit and devotion for kayaking, we asked our fans to create a film or take a photo that inspires others to join the world of kayaking. Enjoy! - B.F.

We designed the Zen with the philosophy that a rescue vest shouldn’t feel like a rescue vest. That comfort and usability can coexist with toughness and safety. With an ergonomic fit for freedom of movement and refined features for flawless utility, the low-profile Zen becomes one with you so you can be one with the river.
