Why We Like The Astral V-Eight Fisher Personal Flotation Device

Using Airescape technology, the V-Eight Fisher Personal Flotation Device takes the recipe of Astral's long-time best-seller PFD, and added some fishing-friendly features to keep anglers cool on the water. Vent ports at the front and back allow trapped body heat to escape during a muggy river trip, with contoured foam and a mesh liner that promotes cooling airflow. For further comfort, the vest is fitted with a soft EVA foam back panel designed to cushion your back against your kayak. 


  • Comfortable, breathable, and fishing-oriented PFD
  • Airescape foam is the first breathable foam for active endeavors
  • Zipper and buckle for secure closure
  • Adjustments at shoulders and sides solidify fit
  • Pockets offer quick and easy access to your angling essentials
  • High mesh back pairs well with boat seats that have back rests

Love the pockets

I'm 6' 170 lbs and the medium fits great. It is comfortable to wear all day and adjusts in enough places to make it fit over all kids of layers or no layers! Good in a boat seat too.

Great for Kayaking Fishing

Great fishing kayak life jacket. Lots of pockets for storage and very roomy. Unobstructed when paddling.

Perfect PFD

The Astral V8 is perfect for kayak fishing! The fit is like a glove, while still allowing for great air flow. The streamlined design of the Astral PFD’s makes it easy to paddle, cast a fishing rod, or even get back on the kayak in the event of an unexpected swim. I’ve used Astral products since 2014 and can attest to their quality firsthand. I wouldn’t be on the water without my Astral PFD.

Perfect Kayak Life Vest

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
5' 10"

After tons of research I finally settled on the Astral V-Eight Fisher. I live in the southeast and primarily kayak during the summer months. I wanted a vest that was comfortable during long days on the water and wouldn’t leave me sweating all over. This one has performed flawlessly over my 1 full season with it. It’s in perfect shape even though it’s had some hard days on the water. I’m more than impressed so far.

V-Eight Fisher

This model adds breathability to the fishing PFD range. The High Back design makes sitting in fishing kayaks a breeze and the tool organization is great.
