Astral Paddle Linda PFD-Rosa Red-L/XL 4008603104. Astral's Thin-Vent back creates an extremely comfortable PFD no matter what seat you're leaning against even kayak seats with high backs. A ventilation channel in the 1/2 foam back panel combined with a mesh liner lets heat and moisture escape for greater comfort. Sculpted ergonomic PE foam panels fit your body comfortably and securely while being easy on the environment. Two large zippered front pockets provide easy access storage for on and off the water essentials. This jacket carries the US Coast Guard Certification through testing by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Newly designed flap covers the lash tab below the right shoulder protecting the lash tab from wear and tear. Six adjustment points allow for a snug customized fit.


With a design fine-tuned for the high seat backs of recreational and fishing kayaks, the women's Astral Linda PFD is a comfortable and versatile choice for adventure-filled days spent on calm water.


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 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).


The Astral Designs Linda is a beautifully designed women's lifevest featuring their Thin-Vent back. This design is the best answer to today's high seat-back recreational kayaks.
