    Used for raft guiding, Love this thing, feels like a great big hug when you cinch it down before that big drop you didn't quite make it down with everyone last time. Big front pocket is great for a phone, snacks, carabiners. Rear pockets fit prusiks and a cam strap.

    I don't mind taking it off over my head I got used to it very quickly, and I know I don't have the best shoulder mobility.

    Comments about Astral Greenjacket PFD:

    I really wanted to like this PFD - but after wearing it for a month down the Grand Canyon and a few weeks at the beginning of the season... I ended up eating $100 on it and selling it to a friend.

    I just couldn't get over how claustrophobic I felt getting this thing on and off. I had to completely loosen up the straps to get it over my head with a drysuit on, then tighten it up to the stops once it was on. The fit for women wasn't awesome - it gave me some pretty epic sideboob. I did take a few swims in it and it felt good/performed well in the water. The clamshell pocket design was awesome. I would recommend this PFD - just not for the ladies. Ended up buying a Stohlquist Descent and am much happier.

      Comments about Astral Greenjacket PFD:

      You can really tell this is a great PFD. Loads of straps to custom your fit. One major deal for me was that you have to pull the jacket on and off over your head. Not having a zipper to put the jacket on and off easily is a major pain. I had to loosen all the straps just to get it off and then back on again. Everything else is bomber but can't have a jacket that is so hard to get on and off. Had to return it. At that price is has to be perfect.

          comfortable. I like the big front storage pocket and other pockets; plenty

          A:

          Well, I can't really compare the 2 but I have the Astral and I do like it. It holds basic rescue gear. They make a low profile throw bag that fits in the front pocket. I have that bag but the front protrudes a bit too much with the throw bag and other rescue gear so I don't use carry the bag Mitch. I rowed the canyon for 18 days in Oct and I will say it is very comfortable. I have not had to use the harness and the quick release (a good thing). A kayaker on the trip also had one. She and I agreed that it is the favorite jacket we have ever had. I would buy it again.
          They are very similar. If you can try both on, I would get the one with the best fit. The astral certainly leaves a good range of motion for kayaking or rowing.
          I hope you have a good season

          A:

          No, there is not a different version for men or women with this vest.
          However, the adjustable straps make it easy for either a woman or a man to
          adjust the vest to their comfort level. The vest should accommodate for
          the various anatomical differences between a man and woman. My wife and I
          both have one of these vests and both feel very comfortable wearing them.
          Make sure to try one on before purchasing this vest to make sure you get
          the right size.

          My first PFD was a women's version, but as Rescue PFDs don't come in gender specific versions, I use Astral Greenjacket. As I am skinny, it fits me well, not difficult to put on and take off. I love the big front pocket to store my camera, knife, etc. However, 2 overweighted friends with big breasts and short torsos are having a hard time with the bulky pocket keeping them from tucking in when they roll their kayaks.

          A:

          Frank, there's only one version of the Greenjacket. While not female specific, the design of the jacket, with an inner portion that fits tight to the lower torso and an outer panel that can be adjusted more loosely, does help make room for breasts. The fit doesn't work for all women, but many find it comfortable. Our Hassle-Free Returns process - http://www.nrs.com/customer-service/returns.asp - allows trying it, risk free. Or, you can look for one of our dealers in your area -http://www.nrs.com/services/dealerlocator.asp

        I'm new to kayaking and this PFD was given as a gift. I have worn it twice in river. When at a local outfitter store I spotted PFD on display and commented it was like mine,. Sales person warned me not to wear this particular PFD because it was rescue rated and folks would think I was professional there to help. Commented on the green color and medical cross were signs to support this claim. True or blowing smoke?

          Yes, the Greenjacket is designed as a swiftwater rescue life jacket. The sales person expressed a legitimate concern and it's one we also recommend to customers. Your on-water safety will be increased if you take swiftwater training and there your Greenjacket will be excellent. Check with local paddlers or paddling shops for instruction in your area. Or, you can find sources in this article - http://www.nrs.com/learn/finding-swiftwater-rescue-classes.asp

        • VERIFIED BUYER

          A:

          More than likely a true comment. The Astral Rescue PFD is usually worn by
          someone who has completed a Swift Water Rescue Course and knows how to use
          the many features of the vest. However, many of the paddlers in my swift
          water course owned an older version of this jacket and had never taken the
          course before. If at some point in the future you are wearing the jacket
          and someone needs a contact rescue (rescuer is tied into a line with a
          belayer) and you’re spotted as a potential rescuer and wearing the jacket,
          standby. I recommend the course if you want to be comfortable in whitewater.

          Answered on 7/28/2014 by Anonymous
        • VERIFIED BUYER

          A:

          That is true. I took a long time before wearing one because of that same
          fact. What they are refereing to is live bait rescues. Look it up, but
          don't try it unless you are with someone who has done it before. It is a
          really risky rescue. Also, using the tow line (I know its not included)
          off of the ring on the back can be risky as well. I know when I got mine
          it came with a pamphlet on a few of the different uses. Look them up. Try
          to take a swift water rescue course where you will practice these things.
          That said, this PFD also has a lot of good body coverage. I paddle a very
          rocky river, and after a friend got thrown onto a rock on her back and
          broke her back, I was convinced to get this PFD for that very reason. It
          is also very good for holding onto stuff like pin kits etc. So, what that
          person was saying is true. I adhered to it for years. However, I do see A
          LOT of people wearing them as their first PFDs around me. My biggest
          recommendation to you would be to take off the ring on the back before you
          learn how to use it, and put it in your clamshell's zipper pocket. That
          way if someone calls on you to use it and you tell them you don't know how
          to, you can tell them that you do have the ring and they can put it on and
          use it if they know how to. ALso, try to communicate to your
          friends/people you paddle with that you are not ready to exercise what is
          required of that PFD, but it is the only one you have. Tell them that is
          why the ring has been taken off the back and is only available for
          emergencies (for use by experienced users) in your clamshell.
          Hope that helps, and welcome to paddling :-)!!!

          I bought this jacket for my husband last year. Although he has
          subsequently taken a rescue course, he had not at the time he received this
          jacket, and no one every criticized him for wearing it. He asked for this
          specific jacket because it allowed him greater range of movement compared
          to his previous one. When he goes out kayaking, there are typically
          designated people (I think they call them "safeties") to help with rescues,
          and everyone knows who those people are in advance. I think the
          salesperson was just being overly literal. Until you mentioned it, I'd
          never actually noticed the medical cross on it.

          A PFD doesn't make you fit or un-fit to help in a rescue situation. I
          would caution though that the rescue strap/ring could snag on something and
          if you haven't trained with the quick-release, it could get you snagged on
          something.

          The Astral Greenjacket is one of the most comfortable PFDs available. It would be a crime not to wear it.
          The safety features of the PFD are not all about rescuing others an can be used to help you too. There are plenty of paddlers such as scout leaders, who aren't rescue experts but wear this type of PFD just so they can attach a tow tether.
          Not everyone who works at an outfitter is an expert paddler, so you have narrowed down who you can rely on for advice.
          Now that you have this PFD you have what you need to start getting involved in learning river rescue skills, see what your local club, the AWA or Rescue 3 offer in your area.

          A:

          There is a stretchy mesh type thing behind the chest piece so you wouldn’t have to put it in in the clam shell. It holds a throw bag quite securely; if you want a zipper to hold it in there is not one back there. I own the PFD but have not seen or used an astral throwback. I bought a small NRS throw bag and it fit behind the panel but it made my PFD stick out way too much and wasn’t comfortable. If the astral throw bag is around 2 and 2.5 inches thick I think it may fit comfortably. My nrs one is 3-4 inches thick. Width and length don’t matter so much. The mesh behind there is fairly sizable. It’s just if there is a ton of thickness between you and the vest where I would see it becoming a problem.

          Are you talking about a rescue throw bag or a tow system? A small wedge
          style bag like the Nrs wedge will fit in the clam shell pocket. I wouldn't
          recommend that as placement. I'd use the quick release snap on the front,
          for faster access. Now if you are talking about a tow system or short
          teather, the side pockets will work great, look at some reviews on YouTube.
          It's a great vest highly I highly recommend it.

          Depends on how big your throw rope bag is. The throw rope should fit in
          the chest cavity of the vest. I have the 2013 Astral Greenjacket and my
          rope fit just fine in the chest cavity of this jacket. The older model
          jacket has a bigger cavity, so I know a personal throw bag should work.

        I Was Told The New Greenjacket Was Side Buckling. The Pic Of The Green One Looks Like It Buckles On The Side, But The Blue Pic Doesn't Have Buckles. Does The New Jacket Buckle, Or Is It Still Pullover?

          The buckle on the side is just the release for the ring in the back for rescue swimming. The jacket is still the pullover design.

          This model is pull over. There are no buckles only tightening straps on the sides.

          The new Green-Jacket is strictly a pull-over. I don’t find it hard to get on and off however.

          Craig, the Greenjacket is still pullover entry. Perhaps the person telling you that was confusing with the NRS Zen, which does have side buckle entry.

          I have the greenjacket rescue and it has no side buckles. It is pullover. Not terrible at all to get on and off though. Comfort and fit are exceptional! So far have been very impressed with this jacket well worth the money.

          It's a pull over, the buckle your noticing is the quick release belt.

          I have the Green one and it does not buckle on the side (still pullover).
          I heard somewhere that the pictures with buckles were either an early
          prototype or only available out side of the USA. It the latter, I'm
          guessing the buckles didn't pass the certification tests for a US Rescue
          PFD.

          Hi,
          It is a pull over. To makes it a side entry you would have to undo side adjustment straps which appear not to be set up for that.
          Hope that helps.

          US version is pullover because of US coastguard cert's. European versions of the Green Jacket have sidebuckles

        Would you say a woman with a larger chest fell comfortable in this jacket?

          I can't speak from experience, but by loosening the two pocket flap straps
          all the way, the straps that go around the body should be able to fit under
          the chest and snugged first. Then pull the pocket straps until the chest
          is snug but not painful.

          Evo, the Greenjacket's inner panel fits below the breast area and the outer panel is adjustable, so you should be able to get a good fit. With life jackets it's always best to try them on first. Check our Dealer Locator - http://www.nrsweb.com/services/dealerlocator.asp?tn=281 - to see if a store near you has the jacket. If that's not possible, we have a great returns policy.

        Hi I'm interested to see a photo of the "five inner compartments for organizing rescue gear."
        Not really sure how thats going to look/work.
        Currently wearing the 1st ed green jacket, which i've loved the main big pocket for fitting pretty much everything.

          Its still a big pocket, but the "compartments" are stitched in sleeves as
          well as a zipped mesh compartment much like what you'd find in a backpack.
          See attached pic.

          Sonz, if we don't have one of our dealers (http://www.nrsweb.com/services/dealerlocator.asp?tn=281) in your area, go with the M/L. The larger size will allow you to add layers and bulkier paddling tops.

          Best thing to do would be to try on both sizes and see what fits you more comfortably. If that's not an option, I'd go for the bigger one.

          The vest is definitely true to size and has ample adjustments to since down
          and extra looseness.

          Both colors, in all three sizes are in stock. When we receive new stock of any item, it's usually online within 24 hours.

          Here's a tip: When a product has a "*Not In Stock, Backorderable" link in the Add To Cart space, click on it and there's a link where you can be notified when it's back in stock.
