Aero-Jet Front panels and Jet-foam back panels
Its what makes the vest float but what makes it awesome is its extremely soft and pillowy. Some vests have layered foam (3-5 layers like a club sandwich), this one doesn’t, its one solid piece of foam making it more flexible and durable. The entire vest, front/back/sides have this foam.
