Thin Vent

A unique approach to designing recreational jackets in which the back panel is made of a super thin foam, allowing the paddler to fully recline in the tallest of seats. A thin mesh strip along the spine helps keep you cool on the hottest days.

  • Great Fit

    May 04, 2018

    So many times, life vests restrict movement and this one is the perfect fit. I took it on a rafting trip recently and recommended it to several other women.

  • So comfortable!

    September 06, 2016

    I bought this vest to due to the thin-back. My rec. kayak has a high top seat and every other vest I have tried has been uncomfortable after a few hours. With the Linda I hardly notice it is there. Thank you Astral for designing a great vest!

  • Almost perfect...but

    July 28, 2019

    This is incredibly comfortable, especially with high seat back kayaks, but two things keep it from being perfect. One, there isn't a good spot to tie off your rescue whistle. The pockets have a small loop inside, which would be the perfect place to tie your whistle lanyard to, if the loop was at the top of the pocket, rather than at the bottom. The other design issue is the placement of the lash tab. Good idea to have it protected, bad idea to have the 'sleeve' so tight that it is virtually impossible to mount anything there. Either nix the idea or make the sleeve 'poofier' so you can get a knife sheath mounted. Still, those annoyances aside, it is a great PFD.
