There have been a number of new PFDs on show at Paddle Expo 2018 and Peak UK have the new River Wrap PFD. This really stands out as a pretty innovative design.

Do you keep it clean?
Astral’s Limted Edition Greenjackets have been around for 10 years marked by the release of the latest LE10 for 2018/2019.
Here they are in one place. With the exception of a couple.

LE10 – River Roots
For the last nine years Astral have released a special (limited) edition of their Greenjacket PFD. 2018/19 is no exception.
Designed for use with kayak/canoes with high backrests the Palm Equipment Meander Highback PFD looks very different to the PFDs we normally see.
When I first saw Paul’s photo (below) I initially thought that the PFD looked like a FX or FX R in a funky new colour. But there is clearly a different zip and an additional zipped side pocket.
The jacket looks new as well!
