..ok, well the pfds are basically the same as the elizibeth, they are made in the same factory,(or they used to since line moved) but aparently the tail tip is raised more height wise, which is good, and the graphics on the pfd are cooler, especially the base. the edges are better since they take the beatting of telemark use. and the bases are "supposedly" stronger. i have ridden them and they will pound through EVERYTHING and they are like wings off cliffs, i would personally take them off of anything. want more info visit..http://www.mec.ca/Products/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524442617813&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302726421&bmUID=1148528909303
