Astral V-Eight PFD

Designed for recreational, touring and sea kayakers. The V8 has been very well designed to meet safety standards and also be incredibly well fitted. The inner lining is constructed from a mesh material that allows airflow to circulate, keeping the paddler cool and comfortable when out exercising.

With plenty of well thought-out features, the V8 is easily donned via the front entry zip. It also has two cavernous front zipped pockets fro carrying essential kit on the person. Paddlers with high seat backs, such as those found on touring and SOT kayaks will appreciate the high-back design of this buoyancy aid.

The V-Eight has not only been designed to be comfortable to wear, it has also been developed to allow a wide range of movement. Providing freedom to the paddlers upper arms and shoulders for a full range of paddle strokes and comfort during long days out exploring.
