Astral Serpent 2.0 PFD

A long time ago HF produced the Serpent PFD that was designed and developed by Allan Ellard. It was a great piece of gear that had a huge following. For 2020 Astral has developed the Serpent 2.0.

The new design is extremely similar to the original with an update in materials, some of the ergonomics and and increase of 20N in buoyancy to a total of 70N.

It’s even available in the Serpent 1.0 colour scheme.

Astral also have an updated colour scheme for the Greenjacket. Check it out here.

Did you own the original? What do you think of this new version? Let us know in the comments section below.

    I had the original, it was the best pfd I ever had, run a close 2nd by the green jacket. I only stopped using the old serpent cos the pocket wore through so a new version from astral with the bomber cordura is super cool
