The Astral Green Jacket is built specifically for river rescue situations. Worn by many of the worlds top paddlers, the Green Jacket has a solid reputation. The large clam shell pocket provides enough space for paddling essentials, such as a pin kit or energy bars. The Freestyle tectonic front panel allows the jacket to move and conform with the paddlers body, as does the 3 piece foam construction used on both the front and back panels. A fleece hand warmer and storage pockets on the back panel are extra built in features. The Green Jacket was designed with safety in mind and provides extra shoulder padding, rescue hardware and durable construction that paddlers can always count on.Astral Green Jacket Rescue PFD Features:

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.
