Beltpack PFDs are a great option for the experienced stand up paddleboarder. However, a lot of the beltpacks currently available are poorly designed or simply too expensive. NZSUP is delighted to announce that they will be working directly with top NZ lifejacket manufacturer Hutchwilco to design the next generation of beltpack PFDs specifically for stand up paddleboarders. While many paddleboarding brands have a product from a Chinese factory with their logo on it, this will be the first direct collaboration between a paddleboarding organisation and a manufacturer to trial and perfect the product. Hutchwilco Limited is a proudly New Zealand owned and operated manufacturer and has been in the marine business since 1894. Their products are available via over 250 outlets around the country.
