I liked the idea of having a throw bag stored in my Astral Willis PFD. It is hard to pull the bag out of the pfd pocket and then it's even harder to open the bag to access the rope. In an emergency, I might be pumped up enough to do it quickly, unless my hands were already tired and numb with cold, as they often are in whitewater. I do like the high vis yellow, and the reflective material is downright cool. The workmanship of astral products is always first rate. I'm not sorry that I chose it. My son and I will just be that much safer on the river.
