The Astral Buoyancy V-Eight PFD was great! I took it on a 23 day trip down the Grand Canyon in March. It was light weight and comfortable. The only time I took a little "swim" it popped me right up out of the rapid. I highly recommend it.
I bought the Astral V-8 to minimize heat gain and
provide ease of movement while paddling. So far in
the mild weather, it has lived up to its billing,
and I am satisfied.
Will not use it until summer. Some concern regarding the inner portion being mesh, that it could be prone to catch on things and perhaps tear.
The Astral Buoyancy V-Eight PFD Lifejacket is a comfy PFD - good fit adjustment. Haven't been in the water with it so I can't judge it's
Complaints - plastic rescue knife plate is setup for a left hand
draw and is really difficult to use with your right. Cruising vest
like this should have multiple pockets. Pocket snap is really
stupid - the tab you see is attached to the pocket, not the cover
flap. This cleaver arrangement makes unsnapping the pocket a
two-handed affair if your fingers are cold.
All in all, this is the best warm weather cruising vest I've seen.
We love the Astral V-Eight lifejackets. We purchased them for kayaking and love the fit and ventilation. ACK customer service was very helpful in selecting the correct sizes.
