Astral YTV PFD

Color: Cherry Creek Red
Size: LG/XL
Sale price$140.00


The Astral YTV PFD is a functional and minimalist PFD design that is ideal for playboating and riversurfing. The unisex, low profile design is ideal for activities where larger PFD designs tend to get in the way of paddling movements. The buoyancy is focused around the waist and has a surprising level of float for its small size, so you're not sacrificing safety for better performance.

  • Pullover entry
  • Quick access, reinforced knife tab
  • Two zippered pockets
  • 1.76 lbs
  • 200 x 400 denier ripstop nylon outer shell
  • 200 denier lightweight nylon liner

    Pro Tip: While the Astral YTV is a great playboating and surfing PFD, its low-profile design is ideal for those who find themselves having to climb back onto rafts and paddleboards frequently, such as whitewater SUP paddlers and commercial raft guides. The smooth front panel keeps this PFD from catching the side of the boat while you're climbing back in from the river.
