Lightweight and breathable, the Astral Camino 200 PFD is a great choice for kayaking, canoeing, rafting or stand up paddling in warm weather.
Astral Buoyancy was founded on the banks of the Rocky Broad River in North Carolina. Since 2002, it has stayed small and responded quickly to the needs of the paddling community. And over time, it has developed a line of paddling products that have become staples and tools of the trade. Protective enough for rafting and mobile enough for stand-up paddleboarding, the versatile Camino 200 Personal Flotation Device is a reflection of Astral's devotion to the entire paddle community. Besides its streamlined fit, the Camino boasts featherlight construction that classifies it as one of Astral's lightest flotation options. The PE chest panels sit close to the chest without feeling restrictive, and the front zip opening makes for easy entry and exit whether you're a seasoned vet or a first-timer. One of the features that truly sets the Camino apart is its Airescape technology, a patented front and back venting system created to allow fresh air to cool you off throughout the day. Compared to the professional-grade Astral Greenjacket and the recreational-style Ronny, the Camino is a multi-facted wonder capable of accommodating both sexes and almost any method of cruising the river, lake, or ocean.
The full-featured Astral Camino 200 PFD features the AirescapeA(R) advanced ventilation system, keeping you cool and comfortable all day long. The Airescape ventilation system's mesh liner, contoured inner foam and airflow ports combine to eliminate excess heat build-up and perspiration. Great for boating in hot and humid conditions. Two large zippered front pockets hold all the essentials. Two hand pockets, sewn behind the front storage pockets, also serve as carabiner parks for your tow tether 'biner. The jacket is compatible with the Astral 1.5" quick-release belt (not included, call for custom order). The ergonomic design offers great fit and range of motion. Reflective tape on the front shoulders improves low-light visibility. Six adjustment points for a custom fit. The waist belt snugs the jacket to your body to prevent ride up. This jacket carries the US Coast Guard Certification, through testing by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Lightweight PE foam comfortably molds to your body, and the two large storage pockets hold all your stuff.
Wearing a PFD on warm days can get a little sticky. The Camino is built with Astral's unique Airescape fabric that allows perspiration and heat to escape while letting cooler air in. Adjustment straps permit a snug fit so the PFD doesn't ride up your back. Large front pockets for snacks, maps or a GPS unit. Reflective trim enhances your visibility in low light. Rescue belt/tow system compatible for sea kayaking, whitewater and river SUP towing applications. Shell is made of ripstop nylon, flotation is polyethylene foam. Coast Guard approved Type III PFD.
