Kokatat Ronin Pro

What’s the buzz on this new pfd from Kokatat? Anybody tried one?

I think its Astral that’s coming out with the Ronin. For 2007 they discontinued the Tempo 300 and added a tow harness to the Tempo 200… not sure of the details on the Ronin.

Kokatat is featuring it as a new product for 2007 on their website.

sorry…Astral’s new jacket is called…
the Grunion.

here is an excerpt from an email I received from Astral…

“The Tempo 300 is no longer in production. We do have several units in stock

and still available for sale.

In 2007 the Tempo 200, will be tow-belt-compatible. This will allow you to

add a 1.5 inch wide quick release belt (sold separately) to a Tempo 200. It

will be slightly cheaper and for the customer and save us and the dealers

from having to deal with an additional model.

We also have an additional Sea-Kayaking jacket coming out. The GRUNION is an

offshore sea kayaking jacket which will retail for $154.00.

2007 Tempo 200’s and Grunions will become available in mid February.”
