Why We Like The Astral YTV Personal Flotation Device

With everything we need and nothing we don't, the Astral YTV Personal Flotation Device is Astral's minimalist PFD. Designed to balance protection and mobility, the foam panels sit low and close to our chest and back while wide arm openings ensure a full range of motion for uninhibited paddling or swimming. As with any good whitewater vest, the YTV features a couple of pockets and the essential lash tab, so we can secure a knife or rescue strobe to the chest. Astral also included six size-adjustable straps to ensure a precise and comfortable fit for every individual.


  • Low-profile PFD for paddlers and sailors
  • High-denier nylon ripstop for abrasion resistance and durability
  • Torso Lock Foam platform secures jacket around the torso
  • Pullover entry for snug fit and less weight
  • YKK zippers for durable performance
  • USCG Type V
  • Intended for kayaking, sailing, and SUPs

Very light but left-handed knife slot

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

Comfortable, compact and light with great range of motion. Got a left-handed knife slot though, no option or indication when buying online.

Perfect for SUP

I've used it several times

Work great for male as well female for SUP. Over the head only is no problem at all as it removes bulky buckles.

Great once it?s on

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

This is my first paddling vest, I purchased to use for SUP. I found the overhead style a bit difficult to get on and adjusted. Once I was wearing it it was fine. Good range of motion light weight. I can?t speak to the flotation because I haven?t fallen in wearing it yet!

Perfect for SUP

Purchased for my wife for SUP, she is 5'4", size S/M fits well. Low profile vest is great for SUP, does not get in the way of paddling. She loves the purple/eggplant color. While we see a lot of people paddling without a PFD but we are more comfortable having the extra protection. This unobtrusive vest makes it easy to bring along and forget that you are wearing it.
