Greenjacket Rescue Kayak PFD Lifejacket
|Astral GreenJacket Rescue PFD - The GreenJacket rescue lifejacket from Astral Designs is the perfect PFD for any rescue, guiding, or expedition setting. Freestyle-inspired Foam Tectonics technology anchors the inner plate in place while the outer plate is free to move around your torso. This allows unhindered range of motion without pulling up on the core of the vest. Flotection armor plating protects your vitals from impact. A large Clamshell front pocket with 5 compartments, as well as zippered side cargo pockets give you room to keep essentials close at hand. Stash a throw rope behind the front panel. A rescue harness with a quick release buckle, a carabiner park for tow systems, a Spectra safety loop for emergency extractions, and fleece hand-warmers round out the safety features. The Astral GreenJacket kayak rescue PFD offers the ultimate combination of safety and fit.
Sizing for Astral Buoyancy Greenjacket Kayak Rescue Lifejacket:
The Greenjacket is a great fit for both men and women. Measure at the widest torso circumference for the best fit.
Been putting off purchasing a new jacket for two years with hopes that Astral would put out a jacket that was not a waist-hugger. I almost had a tear when I saw it under the tree. After several runs in both play and creek situations I have found that it has an ideal balance of what you need and what you don't want. Well positioned straps with low friction, movement with your body, a flack jacket sense of security, and ample pockets. I love the ability to carry more at quick access in the front pouch. The single snap and Velcro is backed by a hard piece of plastic that has a solid flip feature (think those stupid collared shirt strips that keep them straight.) Bottom line, try to get into a shop and try it on before any other 2009 purchase, or just go ahead and buy it!

BEST PFD EVER!
As a beginner working my way to intermediate, I decided it was time for a rescue vest. There aren't many choices for women. The Greenjacket looks good and allows a large range of motion. Needs a sports bra underneath for support. Also, the shoulders are cut out, which looks good, but doesn't offer max protection against rocks (which unfortunately I'm still encountering). All in all, a good vest.
Absolutely incredible PFD, i use it for both freestyle and creek boating and it performs exceptionally in both, I highly recommend it. However it is a bit pricey
