Open Canoe Demo Day Sat 10th May


2014 Astral Sea Wolf PFD

The new Sea Wolf from Astral is due in any minute. 

No real change from last year apart from a fantastic new yellow colour. This is really bright and visable but not gawdy. 

The articulated fit means the main part of the bouyancy aid hugs the body and the front panel is allowed to move freely as you twist. The big clam shell front pocket stores all the items you need close to hand and the hydrovent back panel keeps you cool in hot weather. 

Definately a great sea kayaking pfd for summer.

They even threw in some free bits of kit – adding to their already brilliant help. Through AS we also received support from Kokatat Watersports Wear, who kindly granted us some free cags. Not only are the cags amazingly light and non-restrictive, but they are also exceptionally warm and surprisingly wind-proof. Both Eua…   [Read More]
