Astral Mens V-Eight Touring/Fishing Buoyancy Aid Medium /Large Orange

This will be my favourite PFD for when the weather is warm.

It is light, does not ride up or impede my paddling, and lets some of the body heat and moisture escape.

Also, Astral is committed to sustainability.

Five stars plus.
