Our founder introduced this style of PFD almost 20 years ago, and we’ve found that no other design conforms to a curvy woman’s body better. The hinged  princess seams, boob cups, and super soft organic kapok create a special  fit that women crave.

    LOVE the Layla! I used to rock the old Lotus Designs, and it's great to see it come back around. The fit is very much women's specific, however even my male counterparts like the torso wrap/ low profile aspects and borrow it frequently! Using it with the QR belt is solid, too. I was a bit hesitant but for everyday simple rescue use, it's great!! As per usual, the bomber Astral materials and build are spot on and a great quality. The only issue I have is that the shoulder straps are loose- which as an instructor, means that throughout the courses as I move around, so do they... I wish that there were pockets to tuck them in like the YTV. A simple issue, but after a day of SWR or playboating instruction, it gets to be quite annoying. Aside from that, this is a great jacket!!

    I have the original design from over 20 years ago and I love it I've never found another one that fits quite the same about another brand before I realized that you had switched your name and we're remaking the design I'll definitely buy it another one of these I'd also like to see it with a shorter or thinner back so it doesn't ride up on my touring seat.
