For whitewater professionals and rescuers, anything else would be foolish.

Astral hit the nail on the head when it created the Astral GreenJacket Personal Flotation Device. This is a PFD for whitewater professionals and professional river rescuers, and it oozes with toughness and utilitarian purpose down to the tiniest detail. The front panel features a large, clamshell-style opening that can hold a rescue rope, there's a quick-release harness built into the side, a tow system on the back, a Spectra safety loop for emergency extractions, and the list goes on. Astral's designers even worked in their unique Tectonic foam panel system that uses a static panel at the chest and a dynamic, floating panel at the torso where you need mobility to paddle. Sure, you could find a lighter weight PFD option for the river, and maybe even one that's designed for rescuers, but you won't find another with the laundry list of forward-thinking safety features touted by the GreenJacket.

  • Freestyle Tectonics buoyancy system uses a dynamic foam plate that allows for mobility at the torso and a static foam plate that guarantees that the chest will always be above water
  • Foam plates are reinforced with lightweight plastic for protection against rocks and debris in the river

  • Front panel is large enough to store a rope and features a clamshell opening with five pockets inside
