Air, everybody likes it.
Sure, you're a big proponent of safety—as a river guide, you have to be. But as a river guide, you're also wearing your PFD almost everywhere you go, so you're also a big fan of comfort. Using Airescape technology, the Astral V-Eight Personal Flotation Device is designed to keep you breathing in more than one way. 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 promote cooling airflow. For further comfort, the vest is fitted with a soft EVA foam back panel designed to cushion your back against your kayak, while its quick access knife tab and expanding mesh pockets let you outfit the vest to your liking.

- Q & A
works for seats w/ backs
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I've got inflatable boats for floating/fishing rivers and lakes--some framed and some unframed. Regardless, all have either a rigid boat seat (with back) or folding kayak style seat. Regular life jackets with padding all down the back are uncomfortable on these seats. This unit has the rear inflation material only up high on the back of the jacket--above where a normal seat back is. Making it much more comfortable for a day on the water. Makes it a winner for me.
