Astral - Green Jacket


Astral Green Jacket PFD

Their most innovative and comfortable rescue vest gets a pocket update with a new EVA Molded Central Pocket. Tested in the most extreme environments and situations, this jacket continues to be the only choice for the world’s best river guides and expedition paddlers alike.


The Astral Greenjacket PFD has been the standard for whitewater paddlers since its inception. However, with its full rescue capabilities, comfortable low-profile, and feature-rich outfitting it’s also become a popular choice among flat-water enthusiasts , trippers, and guides.

The Astral Greenjacket PFD offers freedom of movement unlike any other jacket. Along with open sides and low-profile, the Greenjacket features Astral’s ‘Foam Tectonics’ that allow the outer front panel to move with your upper body while the inner panel remains in place. The vest also features ‘Flotection’ armor plating on the sides providing impact protection for your ribs and vitals.

Constructed from 500 denier Cordura nylon with PVC-Free Gaia and PE foam flotation, the Astral Greenjackeet PFD is not only durable, but it’s environmentally friendly as well. It includes a large zippered front pocket with multiple internal compartments to store and organize your gear, and the storage space behind the front panel is ideal for housing a small throw bag.
