Astral breaks new ground with their Greenjacket


- Advertisment -

Asheville, NC – The Astral Buoyancy Company officially announced that
the new Greenjacket has been approved by the US Coast Guard. This highly
anticipated whitewater rescue jacket continues Astral’s legacy of
producing truly innovative and environmentally considerate buoyancy
products for the core market. Originally slated for release in Spring
2008, the testing process had been extended until October when the
jacket passed as a pullover entry. Today the final paperwork arrived at
Astral’s Asheville, NC headquarters.

The Greenjacket is the successor to Astral’s popular Aquavest 300 and
Wonderpro series, and is designed on the platform of Foam Tectonics
where the front buoyancy panels are split into two parts. This
separation enables the paddler to have unrestricted freedom of movement
as well as the ability to customize the height of the front panel. The
Greenjacket is offered in three size options, providing an excellent fit
to both women and men. The Greenjacket provides increased back
protection over previous models and Astral’s signature safety features
like an integrated throwbag pocket and spectra safety loop.

Philip Curry, owner of Astral ecstatically commented that “November 4,
2008 will be a day we happily remember for a long time, the Coast Guard
finally approved our kickass new rescue jacket, and the people of USA
chose Barack Obama our next president.”

The Greenjacket is constructed without toxic PVC and carcinogenic
neoprene. All excess raw materials are recycled.
