V-Eight Personal Flotation Device
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.

- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Love the fit of this life jacket. I have a fairly short torso, and this did not ride up on my shoulders like other PFDs do. I really like the mesh back, and was able to paddle all day without middle back pain! Really breathable material, and I like the mesh pockets. Haven't taken any spills in it yet, but I'm sure it floats too :)

Great fit and comfort!
- I've used it several times
Used this on my stand up paddle and I have to say it fit really nice and also has a ton of adjust-ability. So when my friends or family want to try while I hang out around camp, they have some protection as well. The pockets are a great addition and a perfect PFD for recreating on the water anywhere, email me if you have any questions about this item.
