    Comments about Astral Ronny Fisher Fishing PFD:

    I have recently begun kayaking and was concerned about the range of motion needed compared to my PFD's I have used in the past. This one os comfortable which makes it very likely that I will always wear it when on the water. I love the bright color (lime green). It may not be fashionable, but I am visible.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Prompt delivery just as expected.

        A:

        I'm 210 and it seems fine. It very bulky in the front due to having fishing poaches in the front. I have a raft and find I'm rubbing against the poaches often when rowing. Not sure it's super comfy as a kayaker.
        Flotation probably fine. It is nice a thin in the back which I find is cooler
