    Astral Greenjacket PFD

    Posted by Caitlin on 2017 Jun 14th

    I had a Salus kayak vest previously for flat-water paddling, and have 30+ years on the water, so I've had just about every brand out there. The attention to detail on the vest is fantastic. I went with the LE9, and the colours are amazing! Looks aside, the vest is comfortable and well-designed. I really like the large chest pocket, which makes it way easier to stash gear than other models that only have the mesh netting on their pockets. I can't wait to use the fleecy handwarmer pockets on colder days. I can see the knife mount getting in the way if you're attempting a re-entry into a canoe, but really, there's just no good place to put the dang things, anyways. I'm going to leave my knife in the chest pocket. The material used on the coloured portions of the vest looks very durable and like it will last a long time. This model is designed to be donned over your head, so you'll need to loosen the straps significantly whenever you throw it on, which may be troublesome if you've got shoulder issues. That being said, side-entry models mean having to undo the quick-release belt entirely to get into them, which is a pain. WC&K were super-helpful in making sure my order made it to Ontario quickly (less than 1 week). I highly reccommend these folks for their customer service!
