This legendary vest was best in class 15 years ago and there was very little Astral could do to improve it for 2020.
An increase in buoyancy by 20N, eliminated PVC foam and shifted the buoyancy slightly to make it a safer swimmer. Left untouched are the fit, the function and the clean design aesthetic.
