    Kayak Hunting Vest

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

    This is my first time really kayaking, and purchasing a PFD. But for what it's worth, I love it. Fits well, and is plenty comfortable while paddling - I forget I'm even wearing it. And an unexpected perk is the size of the pockets. I can fit my iPhone XS Max in the left pocket where I can easily access it while out.

    great jacket

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

    bought this for kayaking and the light padding in the back makes it extremely comfortable when floating on the lake. Large openings on the sides allow for full range of motion and all the pockets are great for storage.

    Astral Ronny PFD

      I bought this vest for paddling and it sticks out too far in front to allow full freedom of arm motion. There are other lower profile PFDs out on the market that are more comfortable for paddling.

      Hi there - The Ronny is designed more for high back seats and sit on top kayaks. If you are in a tight cockpit, then the Ronny might not be the best choice. Try the YTV for best freedom of arm movement!

      Thank you,

      Astral Ronny Personal Flotation Device

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Purchased this pfd because I really wanted something with a slim back piece that wouldn't be uncomfortable in my fishing kayak. The back portion is quite thin, which is great, but the front is a bit thicker than the picture indicates. I do really love the pfd though and I would buy again. I am 5'7'' 145lbs and purchased the S/M size. It fits great. Here is a youtube video of me turtling my kayak wearing this bad boy. I did indeed float.

      Great fit

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

      I just received this PFD and was able to try it out while sitting in my Cuda 12 kayak with a high back lawn chair type seat. The back is very comfortable against my kayak seat. The straps are easily adjustable for a good fit. Seems like it will have the all day comfort I was looking for and with the vented thin foam back it will be cool enough down at the coast during hot Texas summers. Plus plenty of pockets for storing little fishing or personal items without having large bulky pockets.

      Great PFD for Kayak Fishing

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've been using this PFD by Astral since June of this year and it is EXCELLENT! Plenty of room to move my middle-aged arms with no danger of rubbing. Fits like a glove and feels secure and plenty adequate. I use it both for kayak fishing and just exploration trips. I'm not a super-strong swimmer, but the Astral Buoyancy Ronny PFD gives me that extra feeling of confidence when I'm on water that's deeper than my comfort zone. Highly recommend this PFD.

      Great PFD for Kayak Fishing

      Fly Fishermans dream PFD.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I purchased this PFD to use for fly fishing on my drift boat. This PFD has tons of open arm space which wont constrict your arm while casting as well as rowing. This PFD has multiple draw cords to adjust the PFD to fit a variety of different sized fisherman. I am 5'11 and about 160, I purchased the L/XL, which was a tad big on me but fit my uncle perfectly who is 6'2 215. Another bonus feature is the fold out beverage holder which is great when you don't have a spare hand for your ice cold brew.
