USA made and out of Ashville, the Astral, V-Eight Fisher PFD is just beautiful. It. has a high back like the Onyx Move and is comparable in terms of ventilation. However, it is more specialized towards fishing and offers more pockets and a more natural design. Their entire line of PFD’s is also made of non-toxic plastic! So this is definitely a great option.

- Beautiful Design

Not the safest, and not the cheapest. But if you wanted a self-inflating life vest here is the best option!

Who would we be if we didn’t include a self inflating PFD! It’s minimal, and honestly kind fo bad a** to inflate your own life jacket. It is manual and it is not USCG approved so just be aware. I just wanted to add a self-inflating contender to the list, and the Eyson Slim Inflatable seemed like a great fit!
