Product Description

The Astral YTV Life Jacket is made for the true whitewater adventurer. Designed with lightweight and very durable Ripstop Construction, you'll have a reliable and strong life jacket to take on the wear-and-tear of constant use. You'll have a Zero Lift Fit Platform which helps keep this jacket in place during constant paddling and movement.

There are two Zippered Front Storage Pockets so you can keep all the necessities very close by. There is also a Shoulder Strap Stash Pocket which allows for a little extra space for storage. With plenty of mobility and light in weight, you can't go wrong with this Astral YTV Life Jacket.

Features & Specs


  • The Zero Lift™ foam platform holds the jacket snugly to your upper torso to prevent ride up.
  • The YTV uses a combination of PE and Gaia® foams for comfortable and earth-friendly flotation.
    Six adjustment points ensure a custom fit for a wide range of paddlers.
  • Two generous zippered front pockets provide plenty of handy storage.
  • Includes a shoulder strap stash pocket for excess shoulder strap webbing or light storage and a lash tab for your knife.
  • This jacket carries the US Coast Guard Certification, through testing by Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
  • Since the YTV has a pullover entry, the US Coast Guard classifies it as a Type V jacket. Type V is their "special use" category and pullovers are lumped in there. Here's what it says on the jacket: "This is a Type V PFD because it has restricted approval allowing it to be used as a Type III PFD only when worn. This device must be worn at all times in order to meet the U.S. Coast Guard regulations requiring PFDs to be carried."
