New Astral Line of Footwear

Anyone in the industry have any idea when Astral might be releasing their new footwear/river shoe line? I saw a lookbook last fall that showed some pretty dope new models, and would assume they would be coming out for this coming 2015 season (obviously...) which is, well, kinda right about now... Just tryin to hold out till they drop!

I'm with ya. I'm hoping to get a pair of Loyaks whenever they decide to finally release them.

And their 2015 PFD's? Hopefully their 2015 Greenjacket is better designed than 2014.

Shoe line should be hitting the ground some time in April. The green jacket is the same for 2015. Keep you eyes on the Astral Facebook page, as the new LE greenjacket should be getting more coverage here soon.

Green Jacket

Is the Green Jacket LE made in the USA?

Take this with a grain of salt, I could be totally wrong here and apologize if I am. This part I am sure of: Astral is still waiting on the shoes to be delivered to them.

I heard through the rumor mill that they are unable to make any PFD's in the USA because of the prohibitive cost of separate USCG regulations - they would have to pay the same fee for the same life vest design based on where it is made. Not sure on that though, like I said, rumor mill.

I'm curious what you don't like about the 2014 GV? Switching from a Kokatat Ronin to the GV I was really impressed with it.
