Astral V-Eight Life Jacket PFD




Astral V-Eight Life Jacket PFD.  “The world’s first breathable PFD. The Astral V-Eight PFD combines our Airescape® technology (patent pending) with an ergonomic design, and light weight construction.

Next to your body a wide, soft, open-weave mesh allows free transport of warm air and sweat away from your torso.
The inside of the Astral V-Eight PFD’, foam has a textured surface that reduces body contact by 70%, creating channels for air to move freely.

Strategically placed “Vent Port” cutouts in the foam let warm air escape out of the jacket.
This tough, breathable life jacket is covered with 200 x 400-denier rip stop nylon, with a polyester mesh liner that is very comfortable.

Articulated foam panels adjust to a wide range of body types and are environmentally friendly.

The super high mesh back is ideal for warm temperatures keeping you cool and comfortable under the hot summer sun and staying out of the way of your seat back.

The front entry is easy to get in and out of with the Self-Locking Vislon Teeth YKK® zipper and the sturdy lash tab secures your knife or other gear.

This jacket carries the US Coast Guard Certification, through testing by Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
Design flotation: 16.2 lbs.

PLEASE WEAR YOUR PFD. It can and will save your life.
