Taurus Gen 2 70N

Given the Yak design team’s background in making PFDs for the harshest environments on the planet, and highly demanding users, why not produce a whitewater PFD that incorporates the lessons learned during those technical projects and offers their benefits for the best possible product at the best possible price.

The Taurus takes comfort and freedom in a whitewater PFD to a whole new level. Its 4D Cast shaped front panels literally wrap around the body like a warm caress, and the minimalist back panel… well, you won’t even know it’s there! The second-generation Taurus takes all the goodness of its predecessor and adds improved storage options, whilst still having the ability to add a rescue belt, for those more serious trips.
