As inventors of the open mesh back PFD, Astral Buoyancy had to take it to the next level with the LDB PFD. This is the perfect PFD for Long Distance Boating...hence the name. Mesh-back jackets are inherently bulky and place foam high on the back creating a stuffy, not-so-fresh feeling. Astral Buoyancy's new foamless back, choice of materials, and superior tailoring allow for an unmatched level of comfort while wearing the LDB.Great for recreational boating, touring, kayak fishing, or whitewater.

The Astral Buoyancy LDB PFD is all about comfort on long kayak tours. The LDB Life Jacket's mesh back doesn't interfere with high seat backs, so don't fear PFD-around-my-ears syndrome. The mesh back also ventilates while it supports, which makes the LDB great for warm conditions.
