Astral GreenJacket Whitewater Rescue Jacket (PFD) L-XL

THIS IS THE JACKET FOR WHITEWATER GUIDES & RIVER RESCUE PROFESSIONALS - ANYTHING ELSE WOULD BE JUST PLAIN FOOLISH

Astral hit the nail on the head when it created the Astral GreenJacket Personal Flotation Device. This is a PFD for whitewater professionals and professional river rescuers, and it oozes with toughness and utilitarian purpose down to the tiniest detail.

The front panel features a large, clamshell-style opening that can hold a rescue rope, there's a quick-release harness built into the side, a tow system on the back, a Spectra safety loop for emergency extractions, and the list goes on.

Astral's designers even worked in their unique Tectonic foam panel system that uses a static panel at the chest and a dynamic, floating panel at the torso where you need mobility to paddle. Sure, you could find a lighter weight PFD option for the river, and maybe even one that's designed for rescuers, but you won't find another with the laundry list of forward-thinking safety features touted by the GreenJacket.

FEATURES

  • Freestyle Tectonics buoyancy system uses a dynamic foam plate that allows for mobility at the torso & a static foam plate that guarantees that the chest will always be above water.
  • Foam plates are reinforced with lightweight plastic for protection against rocks & debris in the river.
  • Pullover entry ensures ultimate security by eliminating a zipper opening that could bust open or break.
  • Front panel is large enough to store a rope & features a clamshell opening with five pockets inside.
  • Spectra safety loop provides an attachment point for a rope during emergency river extractions.
  • Carabiner Park allows you to utilize a web toe or tow cord for boat or paddler recoveries.
  • Two side cargo pockets with zip closures for small gear.
  • Front lash tab for attaching a rescue knife or strobe.
  • Quick-release rescue harness tack-stitched into vest, rated to 540kg.
  • Built-in fleece hand-warmer.
