More Info

Thin-Vent Back: A unique approach to designing recreational jackets in which the back panel is made of super thin foam, allowing the paddler to fully recline in the tallest of seats. A thin mesh strip along the spine helps to keep you cool on the hottest days.
PVC Free: every product in Astral's line is completely free of toxic PVC. Astral reuses as many scraps as possible, recycles everything, and composts their coffee beans.
