Pro Tip: The Green Jacket is a real-deal type V PFD with every possible thing a rescue professional could ever want. That said, there are a lot of choices made in the design this PFD that gear it towards being a piece of rescue gear instead of a comfortable, everyday PFD. Think carefully on whether you think you need all the features this vest offers, and check out the Astral BlueJacket if you really like a lot of the style choices of this PFD but do not require the bomber type V functionality that the Green Jacket offers.

I’m on my third Green Jacket
I keep going back to Astral’s Green Jacket about every 10 years. Great fit, features and design enhancements with each iteration make it a no brainer. However, since this jacket is designed for rescue use, I would like to see a bit more floatation for additional safety.
