Abba Personal Flotation Device

Equipped with a women-specific fit, the Astral Women's ABBA Personal Flotation Device shines above the rest with a unique construction that's strong, dependable, and comfortable. Specifically, the Abba gains its buoyancy from an organically grown and sustainably harvested plant fiber called kapok that conforms naturally to your body. Plus, this PFD is fashioned with two fleece-lined hand warmers, two large zippered hand pockets, one zippered chest pocket, folding knife pocket, and a quick-access knife tab. The self-locking Vislon zipper and buckle entry make the vest easy to don and super secure when you're in the water.

I really wanted a front-zip PFD, but this is REALLY uncomfortable. This PFD is supposed to be for women, but I don't think it's made for women with breasts! I'm a C-cup- not huge by any stretch of the imagination, but I couldn't breathe with this PFD on. Had to send it back.

Waaayyy too bulky for a woman. Followed the sizing guide and if I go any larger it will get in the way of my arms when paddling.

Hi Deborah - Sorry to hear the Abba wasn't the right pick for you. It's definitely a favorite for its comfort with the Organic Kapok, but that's why there's a variety of models to hopefully accommodate different needs. Not sure what type of paddling you are doing, but I would recommend checking out the Linda model as it utilizes a thinner back panel design and will be slightly lower profile in the front as well - not to mention being designed specifically for women. Another alternative is the Blue Jacket which offers incredible adjustability with regards to fit and is extremely popular for both WW and touring purposes. Mark - Astral Rep

Good for males too

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I used this for a quick day excursion down the Green in Southern UT. It fit me well as a 6'2" 150lb slender guy. Nice soft fabric on the chest area, and comfortable adjustments to get that precision fit.


Astral Abba for the ladies

Guy have their own version in the Norge, but the Abba was designed for her! Leta Astral Rep
