 Post subject: Lotus Mesh Back is back
PostPosted: Sun Feb 11, 2007 4:38 am 
Lotus (now Patagonia Paddling) have voluntarily recalled their mesh back Mildwater and Fisherman PFDs last year, for insufficient buoyancy in some items. The list of affected manufacruring lots is on the Patagnia website. Have no idea, what happened to almost identical Lotus Quietwater and Lotus Deepwater (which were not recalled, but are no longer listed on Patagonia webiste either). Anyway, new mesh back has been introduced, named Patagonia Mesh Back: http://www.patagonia.com/web/us/product ... .MENS.PFDS

They've replaced the PVC foam with non-PVC, for environemental reasons and ligther weight, and hopefully the buoyancy is now within the norms. So far I see it on the Patagonia website only, for $90.
