Product Description

Astral Buoyancy V-Eight Life Jacket - The world's first breathable PFD, the V-Eight lifejacket from Astral combines patent-pending Airescape technology with an ergonomic design and lightweight construction. Airescape is a revolutionary air flow system that eliminates excessive heat buildup and perspiration to maintain a comfortable core temperature. Strategically-placed vent ports in the foam channel in cooler air. The textured inner surface minimizes body contact by 70%, letting air move freely. An open-weave mesh lining transports warm air and sweat away from your torso. The high mesh back also makes the V-Eight a great fit against taller seat backs. Environmentally-friendly articulated foam panels with a sculpted upper front adjust to comfortably fit a wide range of men's and women's body types. Velcro tabs on the shoulder straps manage loose webbing ends, and multiple side adjustments make it easy to customize the fit. Two large zippered mesh pockets expand to hold your essentials. Beat the heat with the barely-there feel of the Astral V-Eight life jacket.
