The Coastman


The Coastman was designed to reduce the number of injuries and deaths that occur on our coast lines every year. The Coastman offers the fisherman high levels of buoyancy and protection from rocks and debris and also provides storage for multiple days of fishing. The quick release system allows the user to detach from a heavy bag and swim to safety in sticky situations.
