A quality PFD is an essential piece of safety equipment and must be worn any time you are on the water. The Astral V-Eight is a unanimous staff favorite for all purpose packrafting. It is lightweight, comfortable, and the high back design fits perfectly with our backrests and spray decks. The Astral Layla is built specifically for women and is the most comfortable women’s PFD we’ve tried. The Astral Green Jacket is ideal for rescue and challenging whitewater. Finally, the Bird Dog is the perfect PFD for taking your dog on your trips.
