Imagine it: sunny and 78 degrees with a gentle breeze. Less the swallows and the squirrels you are alone with your thoughts. Casting. Reeling. Floating. It's like an out of body experience that...oh Jiminy Cricket, there's a bite! A big bite. A...uh-oh...a bite you might not have been entirely ready for lost in a reverie of your 8-year-old-self looking down upon your adult self, contemplating age and the circle of life. A bite that, in a split second, turns your out of body experience into an out of boat experience.

Astral's Ronny Fisher is a personal floatation device designed for expert anglers. In addition to keeping you afloat, this low profile jacket also aims to keep you cool and comfy on the water. Its ThinVent Back is both breathable up and down your spine, and fashioned to integrate with all types of boat seats, even those with high backs.

In addition to safety and comfort, the Ronny Fisher adds a full frontal of storage to its vest flaps, including multiple pockets, a quick-access knife tab, a tool organizer, and even an elastic drink holder. A stowable rain hood tucks into the back.

The Ronny Fisher PFD has USCG-approved certification and a 16-pound design buoyancy. Its insert is 100% PE foam, and that's covered with a shell of 500 denier Cordura and 1000 denier ballistic fabric. The liner is high tenacity 200 denier nylon and polyester mesh. The vest weighs approximately 29 ounces, and comes in sizes S/M, M/L, and L/XL. Choose from colors Green, Charcoal, and RealTree Max-5 Camo.
