Nope, none in particular.

The one I've got is a BPS model. Has lots of mesh so it's not too hot. It's comfy enough. I wear it 90% of the time. In shallow, calm, warm water with a buddy I have taken it off on really hot days.

Any models anyone would suggest.

Ascend is bass pros brand. West Marine also has 1 descent inexpensive one.
Dicks has the onyx. Have seen very few vest at academy for yak anglers. They do have paddlers vest but I wasn't to impresses with their stock :-/

If you buy an Astral PFD, they will replace the foam for a $12 shipping charge. Or at least that used to be the case.



"This is a great question! We recommend approximately 300 days on the water, or 5 years; whichever comes first. At this time it might be good to examine your jacket to see what kind of shape it is in. If you feel that it could use some new foam, please contact us and we will re-stuff the jacket for only a $12 return shipping charge. At this point you may be able to get another season out of it.

You will want to make sure to check the outer shell of the jacket, for any spots that have been/are beginning to wear out. To maximize the life of your PFD, try out some of the care tips below that we recommend:

-Do your best to thoroughly dry your jacket after use
-Do not keep you jacket in direct sun for long periods of time
-Avoid unnecessary compression of your PFDlike cramming it into a small storage container when you are not using it.
-Do not store the jacket in extremely cold or hot spaces
-You can scrub some of the dirt out of the shell by using a small nylon bristle brush and some gentle detergent. Rinse the jacket and hang to dry.
I hope this information is helpful! But if you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

Thank you,
-Margie Matthai "
