Astral Buoyancy made the Ronny Personal Flotation Device with a lightweight, breathable design that gives you plenty of room to maneuver for high angled paddling and that plays nicely with the high backed seat of your boat. In your excitement to get out on the water, you might even wear it in the car as you zip toward the shore although unless you have your kayak on your roof rack, other motorists at stoplights might do a double take. While women can wear the Ronny, the Astral Buoyancy Linda PFD offers ladies a better fitting, gender specific PFD. PE foam panels provide 16 pounds of buoyancy and maximum range of motion. Articulated around your chest and super skinny in the back, the paneling not only offers life sustaining support but also a comfortable, custom fit. Side webbing straps can be adjusted to accommodate layers if you're paddling across the lake on a cool, fall morning. Rugged 200D nylon won't whimper with the occasional pow from a paddle or scrapes with the side of the boat. Inside, mesh helps move moisture so your 'yakking isn't yucked up by sticky sweat. The sheer quantity and quality of the pockets on this PFD will make you think twice about only wearing it on the water. One of the pockets unzips to reveal a mesh bevvie holder which means you can safely stash your suds when you need two hands to hold your sandwich. Other pockets offer to hold your waterproof point and shoot, sun safe lip balm, or a small fly box for when midge fishing is prime. With minimal bulk and basic features, the Ronny PFD suits paddlers of just about any skill level whether your boat of choice is a canoe, sit on top, angler, recreational, or touring kayak.
