Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The women's Astral Linda PFD works with the high seat backs of many recreational kayaks, and its durable polyethylene foam offers weight savings and high flotation. Women-specific design includes a short torso height, sculpted foam in chest and contoured foam around the torso. Nylon outer shell provides superior abrasion resistance and durability. Large mesh pocket conveniently stores essentials, and lash tab offers quick access to a paddling knife or safety radio (both not included). Dial in the fit using the adjustable webbing side straps and adjustable shoulder straps. Reflective highlights placed high on the vest both in front and behind increase visibility when sitting low on the surface of the water. Closeout.

You've gained some paddling confidence but your decades-old PFD makes moving painful. Ditch the ancient, army-green vest in favor of the Astral Buoyancy Women's Linda Personal Flotation Device. Large arm holes leave ample room to brandish your paddle from any angle, and the back rises high enough to save your scapulae from high-backed kayak seats. This buoyant baby is specifically engineered to keep your XX silhouette comfortable whether you're SUP-ing 'round the pond or taking your recreational 'yak out for an all-day paddle n' picnic. This fun-loving USCG-certified PFD provides 16 pounds of float and prefers touring lake caves in a canoe or a leisurely afternoon paddle in a 'yak (look elsewhere for a PFD for whitewater). Rugged 200D nylon won't shirk from wayward paddles or touchy-feely tree limbs. The inner mesh lining isn't meek when it comes to keeping you cool. A skinny strip of mesh runs midway down the center of your back to give paddle-produced perspiration an obvious escape route while letting fresh air swirl around your shoulder blades. The women-specific design takes articulated foam panels and carefully contours them around your torso for maximum comfort without sacrificing safety. Polypro webbing at the shoulders and sides lets you customize the fit with a few simple tugs. Shaped for a lady but buoyant enough for a man, the adjustable straps let the Linda fit a wide range of body types easily, safely, and comfortably. Two large pleated pockets easily hold your camera, lip balm, and a baggie of snacks (which you don't have to share).
