Astral v. Lotus Rescue Vest
I am looking to get a rescue vest and have a few questions about some. NRS has the 2004 astral aquavest 300R rescue vest for sale right now for 140$. The lotus p-vest is 180$. I have an astral vest right now and really like the fit and style, but I was talking someone at Confluence who said they weren't carrying the astral rescue vest because they didn't like the way it was made/performed. Are they fixing these problems for 2005? Does anyone have any input on either vest or 2005 astral? Should I get the 2004 astral, p vest, or wait for the 2005 astral? Are their any other good rescue vests out there I might be overlooking, Extrasport, HF, etc.? Thanks for info.
