The women's Astral Layla PFD has a unique women-specific design that fits just about any body profile for better comfort and no chafing on longer paddles.


Most PFDs are unisex, which is generally code for, "designed for men", but Astral's Layla Women's Personal Flotation Device is actually made for women. The articulating front panels are designed to hug your curves, not squeeze them to death, and a side zipper and quick-release side straps help you dial in a comfortable fit, so you can actually get your PFD on and off. A front pocket closes with a large buckle to prevent accidental openings, and the nylon and polyester construction won't tear if it snags on branches or rocks.
