PFD brand identification

I have a question on a PFD. I used one last year that was Class V and was something like American something or the other.

Yeah, I know, not much to go on, but if that jars anyone's memory and they can suggest the full brand name I'd appreciate it.

All I need are some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I'm fine.

I think America's Cup stopped making pfds about 5 years ago, Extrasport makes a High float pfd very similar now.

The Extrasport one... is that the UT5 Gorge? Has a heads up collar? Is it pretty good quality? With our gear we have 30 PFDs... we like to replace a couple each year and want them to last. I've always liked the heads up collar design for casual rafters. Is the Extrasport one a good piece or should I be looking at something else?
