Astral V-Eight Life Jacket

See all pictures

You will get the most security when kayaking while wearing the Astral V-Eight life jacket. Made from 400-Denier Ripstop Nylon, PolyPro webbing, and self-locking Vislon Teeth zippers, it is as tough as a life vest can get.      

The quick-release buckle combined with foam panels allows you to move comfortably so that you won’t have to call it a day after merely an hour of kayaking. The sides of the jacket are open, and the shoulder straps are made to be unobtrusive – you won’t have trouble paddling in your preferred style. 

The manufacturer ensured the jacket is fully ventilated, which is a must for warm days spent under the direct sunlight. 

Being completely free of toxic PVC materials, the jacket can be recycled without ending up in the landfill. This is a win-win.
