Astral Layla Personal Flotation Device - Women's
AstralLayla Personal Flotation Device - Women's

Paddle like a girl.

Most PFDs are unisex, which is generally code for, "designed for men", but Astral's Layla Women's Personal Flotation Device is actually made for women. The articulating front panels are designed to hug your curves, not squeeze them to death, and a side zipper and quick-release side straps help you dial in a comfortable fit, so you can actually get your PFD on and off. A front pocket closes with a large buckle to prevent accidental openings, and the nylon and polyester construction won't tear if it snags on branches or rocks.

    BOOBAGE

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have worn countless pfds that fit poorly over my large chest. Not to mention the pressure against my breasts is uncomfortable, but it also makes it hard to breathe. I love this women specific pfd due to its built in boob shapes! I fit in it quite perfectly ;)

    Samantha, the technical term is "boob cups!" LOL!!

    Enjoy!

    Very comfortable

      I havent gotten to take this jacket on the water but my first impression is positive. It fit well and didnt feel too bulky. the chest pocket is a little weird. Some of the space seems hard to access but for the most part it will hold the bare essentials. I am happy with my purchase and like the color a lot.

      Comfortable

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I bought this as a gift and she says it fits very comfortable and loves it.

      Thank you Juan!

      Will this work with my sit on top kayak? I am 36DD and were size 10 and sometimes 12 jeans. I wear a large a hoodie. Will the l/xl fit me? Does this offer good flotation? How safe is it to be wearing on my kayak?

      Hi Ashley, I would guess that you will have no issue. I am newer to Astral as a rep, but I do know that the Layla was designed to fit larger chested women very well. It will be great for your sit on top kayak. The flotation offered is good enough for class 4-5 kayakers!



      Enjoy!

      Perfect Fit

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I love this PFD. It's comfortable and cute! The side zip is a genius feature making it easy to get on and off. The adjustable straps on the shoulders and around the waist are super easy to tighten and the front pocket is a bonus. You can fit a beer in there, a camera or whatever else you need for easy access. All around the best PFD! For reference, I'm 5'3", 34B chest and wearing size S/M.

      Perfect Fit

      Jaclyn! Sweet picture! Thank you for the review!

      Great women's pfd!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I have a large bust and this vest is very comfortable and easy to adjust to fit my form. I swam a pretty big rapid and it popped me up right away. Plus the color is cute and the front pocket works great as a beverage holder. ;-)
