A year after the original release date of Februaury 2021 the new Stohlquist Descent rescue vest has finally hit the shelfs. Was it worth the wait…..we think so! With the Astral Green dominating the Rescue lifejacket category in the US and the Kokatat Hustler as well as the NRS Zen filling in for those not buying into Astral’s cult following there’s another solid option. With updated adjustable shoulder straps, clam shell style pocket, and side zip entry the Descent offers many great features. The vest appears very well thought out and offers an incredibly comfortable fit at the competitive price of $295 and it’s own rugged style. If you’re in the market for a new rescue vest come on in and check it out!
