Here's what other sites are saying:

The Sea Wolf PFD from Astral Buoyancy combines storage space, lightweight construction and a fit that's beyond the ordinary. Use it for long paddles with kayaks, canoes or SUPs for excellent comfort. You'll paddle more easily thanks to separate foam panels that move freely with your paddling motion. They're designed to work like tectonic plates, with an outer panel moving freely while the inner panel remains anchored in place. Outer ripstop shell provides superior abrasion resistance and durability. Large clamshell front pocket features plenty of space and additional organization pocket. Side buckles make it easy to enter PFD from the side if you are wearing paddling layers. 7 in. elastic back band enhances comfort during long paddles; front adjustment straps dial in the torso length. Two side pockets offer a cozy place to warm up hands. Specialized attachment point on back of PFD is designed to work with a paddling strobe light, 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.

Ditch the floating cesspool of cruise ships and take a sea kayak tour around the tip of Argentina for an up-close and personal view of seals, penguins, and other incredible wildlife that can't be seen anywhere else. With the Astral Buoyancy Sea Wolf Personal Flotation Device fastened firmly around your chest, you'll comfortably paddle through the Golfo Nuevo to reach the Valdes Peninsula. Designed with sea kayakers in mind, the Sea Wolf is lightweight and quick-drying, and it displays an impressively economical use of space. Certified by the USCG, the Sea Wolf blends Gaia and PE foam to give long-distance paddlers comfort and confidence until shore is a sure thing. The Foam Tectonic platform puts the flotation into plates, like the tech namesake, to keep the PFD profile fairly low. The vest itself is made from burly 400D ripstop nylon and lined with a moisture-managing, though tough, 200D nylon mesh. While seal tusks outmatch the Sea Wolf, errand oars or rough rocks shouldn't leave your PFD worse for the wear. Polypro webbing makes it simple to tweak the fit to match your layering for changing weather. The front clamshell pocket has a hard foam front and unzips to give you a portable tray, in case you need a dry place to rest your snacks. A fleece-lined handwarmer hides behind this pocket so you can warm your water-chilled paws when you paddle into a protected bay. Two side mesh pockets sit just a little bit above your hips. These mesh pouches are perfect for carabiners, lip balm, or an emergency energy bar. Your hiking hydration bladder fits in the back of the Sea Wolf with the tube snaking over your shoulder for easy access to liquid.
