The Layla PFD has been in the line up for a number of years. In fact some 20 years.
For 2022 Astral are releasing a limited edition (LE) of the Layla. This is the same Layla PFD but with a limited edition outer cover. In this case the PFD has some awesome art work.
This Layla LE is a collaboration with whitewater kayaker Nicole Mansfield and artist Kate Shea that uses iconic illustrations and color to celebrate the elegance and playfulness of water and women.
10% of sales will be donated to organizations empowering women and youth in the outdoors.
The Layla is a whitewater PFD that is capable of taking a rescue belt (sold seperately).
