Asheville, NC – Astral continues to provide expert anglers what they want and need in a best in class lifevest with a new RealTree Max-5 Camo® design in their popular Ronny Fisher PFD. Loaded with technical features, the Ronny Fisher is fully-loaded to meet the specific needs of kayak anglers.

“Since expanding into the fishing market in 2014, we’ve worked closely with our team of athletes and the North Carolina Kayak Fishing Association (NCKFA) to create the best gear for anglers,” notes Astral’s Sales Manager, Bryan Owen. “Pairing up with RealTree on the Ronny Fisher was an obvious choice and we couldn’t be happier with the design.”

The Ronny Fisher utilizes Astral’s proprietary ThinVent™ technology that keeps anglers cool and comfortable by using a super thin foam that is evenly distributed in the back. It also allows the user to be able to fully recline in the tallest of seats without interference.

Durable and functional, the Ronny Fisher utilizes a 500d CORDURA® shell and offers an abundance of storage with large zippered pockets and compartments. The two large fold down pockets in the front are sized perfectly to fit up to a 6.5” x 4.25” tackle box (sold separately). Additional features include a zinger and tool organizer with Velcro closure, a zippered beverage holder, stowable rain hood in neck collar, additional attachment points for all tools and gadgets, and plenty of pockets to hold a fishing license, phone, or other accessories.

The Ronny Fisher with RealTree Max-5 Camo will hit retail shelves March 2016. MSRP $159.95, Sizing S/M, M/L, L/XL. For more information on Astral and their collection of performance footwear and best in class PFDS, contact Mandy Giles at
