Always have a backup plan when you hit whitewater. The six-foot Astral Buoyancy Web Toe stashes into your compatible Astral PFD and gives you a necessary tool for recovering a boat or another boater from the raging river. Astral revisited last season's design and decided to upgrade the carabiner to a William locking model to reduce the opportunity for snagging. With a nearly endless list of rescue applications, this is a piece of gear you can't afford to leave behind.
That is the most important thing about safety gear. Needs to work. I do not like bungee since you want tow to be tight when pulling. Not stretching. Love this thing.
