The Astral Layla PFD is the brand’s flagship personal flotation device and has been a fan favorite for the last 20 years. Women love this model because it conforms to curvy figures. I love that they stuck to the “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it” philosophy and continue to provide this, because there would probably be a huge objection if it were ever discontinued. It’s the most comfortable PFD I’ve ever worn.
I’m curvy, so I’m the ideal body type for this PFD. I have a great range of motion wearing this PFD, and it’s going to be my best friend on the lake this summer for kayaking and SUP’ing. Princess seams and boob cups make a big difference, and if there’s any way for a PFD to be cute, this one accomplishes it. Look at the lotus flower on the back, isn’t that a nice touch? I also like the embossed patterns in the fabric. It’s a pretty design, the eggplant is beautiful, though it also comes in turquoise. Another great thing about the Layla is that it’s eco friendly with organic kapok filling. If you’re a curvy woman, I doubt very seriously you’ll ever find a more comfortable PFD.
