Whitewater athletes continue to progress the sport on larger volumes and higher flows. With 22 lbs of flotation sculpted into Astral's industry leading FoamTectonics™️ architecture, the Indus™️ is the world's first freestyle-inspired high float life jacket. That’s a 33% increase in flotation over the legendary GreenJacket™️ for those drawn to big water.


High float life jacket for high flows. (33% more buoyancy than the GreenJacket™.)


Freestyle-inspired two-panel architecture prioritizes mobility.

Modern PFDs have to balance function, fit, and style. The Indus™ puts function first by significantly increasing flotation without compromising comfort or fit. This is an important consideration for the whitewater industry as more and more paddlers take on huge-volume whitewater. More flotation for safer progression in the sport.
