ACK Review: The Astral V Eight PFD Life Vest is one of the most ventilated jackets I have ever put on my body. The back is the most open I have seen without the front being overly cumbersome. There is a little more material under the arm than I normally like but in this case the trade off is a good one.

The life jacket is light, comfortable and unobtrusive. Will try it in some warm weather as soon as summer is here. AKC service was exceptional and they matched REI's discount price.

This is a very comfortable and adjustable PFD, haven't had to test it yet, but we are very happy with the fit and quality. ACK has very fast shipping, an awesome selection and great prices. We will shop here first for our kayak gear!

I bought this after reading many reviews on the comfort of this pfd, and how well it worked for a high-back kayak seat. I have a 140 Tsunami and after wearing this for 3 hours, I couldn't wait to take it off. It's moderately comfortable, but doesn't work with my high-backed seat at all. I couldn't get comfortable and kept trying to shift it up/down, so I am on the search for a truly high-back seat compatible pfd.

Really pleased with the fit of this pfd. They actually use med/lg instead of lg/xl which makes a huge difference in my body size. This fits perfectly when most won't.

Very comfortable; easy to make adjustments. No compromising safey when you unzip to cool off since the belt keeps it in place. I would like a second mesh pocket.

This vest is perfect for my sit- on-top and cross-over kayak. The back is great for keeping me cooler while on the water.

This vest is perfect for the hot summers here in Sarasota Fl. Breathes easy and drys quick.Fits perfect in my Tarpon 140 Ph3 seat. Nice quality,but wish it had another pocket and a better way to attach my Gerber River Shorty. These companies should cross pollinate more often.
