This is the Astral Norge. This is a Coast Guard approved PFD. It uses some unique flotation materials. In the front, it uses kapok, which is a natural fiber, said to last longer than foam and let me tell you, it's really soft. It feels like you've got the down pillow from your bed kind of wrapped around you. It's that soft. In the back I have traditional contoured foam, nice, open, no restrictions here.
Features. I've got adjustments on the shoulders here. I can drop or raise this. My side adjustments, I've got these stretch panels and I've got an lower and an upper adjustment. Then, for the waist belt, I've got a quick release here, and I can adjust here independent or I can adjust it on the side and just kind of customize this to my chest. I've got a storage pocket here on the side, which is pretty deep, and it has a lanyard in here, so I can attach my keys. I've got a universal attachment point here for a light or a knife or whatever I need.
For entry exit, just open that, unzip, but before I do that, want to show really nice feature. When it's cold out and your hands start to get numb, if you stuck your hands right in here, you've got the warmth of your body, and I'm going to show you these fleece, nice thick quilted fleece panels that keep the outside of your hands warm. Let me get right to that. On the inside, this quilted material is what your hands' resting in. Really nice feature in the cooler months when you're sailing. This is the Astral Norge PFD with kapok.
