Stohlquist Cadence is an entry level, recreational PFD, designed with a slightly wider than average footprint. The broader design allowed Stohlquist to make the Cadence thinner and more conforming, so it wraps more snugly around your body and offers maximum comfort.
Stohlquist Glide is the female-specific version of the Cadence model. This PFD utilizes the same larger footprint and thinner foam design but has a different graded sizing to the Cadence as well as built in, sculpted cups for increased comfort.
Stohlquist Canyon is a commercial grade PFD, designed for whitewater rafting and kayaking in the most demanding environments. This is pure floatation. The Canyon is a no-frills, easy to use, secure vest which will keep you or your customers safe in big rivers and raging torrents.
Stohlquist Canyon Youth is a high float PFD designed for commercial whitewater boating and rafting. It's an extremely low-profile, high mobility vest that offers big buoyancy for big water. A terrific fit for petite and younger boaters alike - perfect for teens and tweens.
The YTV is Astral’s freestyle inspired PFD. This minimal, simplistic vest gives you true freedom of movement and maximum rotation. With Astral’s Torso Lock system and the low cut of the YTV, you keep the bulk as low as possible, keeping your shoulders free.
Recreational, fishing and touring trips can quickly become uncomfortable with the wrong PFD. If you’re paddling in a hot area, or working really hard on the water, you need equipment which can keep you cool and allow you to keep cruising all day long.
There are times where vest style PFDs are either too warm or cumbersome, or perhaps you just want to wear something smaller. The Air Belt is designed for use in warm weather, on calm water, usually by paddleboarders or kayak anglers who like to stand in their boats.
Stohlquist Trekker is remarkably similar to the Cadence on first glance. Turn it around, however, and it’s a whole different beast. The Wrapture torso system is an advance on the normal set up that Stohlquist use. It pulls the front panels even tighter around your torso, leaving you maximum movement to paddle comfortably.
Stohlquist Rocker is the ideal low profile PFD for whitewater or SUP paddlers. This is one of Stohlquist’s most popular PFDs, loved for the simplicity of the design. By centering all of the bulk around the waist, you maximize upper body movement and freedom. This is a great choice of PFD for a freestyle river paddler who can’t afford to miss a stroke.
Your young paddler needs a life vest that they feel comfortable and stylish in, and more importantly, one they will want to wear all day. The Otter 2.0 is a youth kayaking life jacket designed to fit paddlers weighing between 50 and 90 pounds.
Ever been fishing and forgotten which pocket you’ve put your pliers in? Or where your phone is this time? With the Sturgeon, Astral have solved your problems by consolidating five pockets into one enormous clamshell style pocket. This might sound confusing, but when the pocket itself can be used as a shelf, and with the level of internal organisation that Astral have included, it’s easy to find anything you need.
