Currently have Hutchwilco inflatable with added Crotch staps.
 They are testing fine, but getting a little raggity now, so time to think about replace/ upgrade.

We cross bars..and didnt when we 1st brought them..
And something can wear all day and still fish , move around, work the capstan etc  nps.
Im  76 to 78kg
101cm chest.

So thinking, maybe proper non inflatable, snug fitting, jackets like we have on the grandchildren The Menace Triton Series

Dropped into Sm,art Marine the other day, tried a few on.
One that did fit real well was the Grand Pacific Navigator Premium Except it states 55 to 70kg and
The XL is rated 80kgs not quite the snug fit but ok

Then there is the Menace Triton (same type as grandchildren's) Rated 87 N.  Bit bulky

Then Burnso have Ultra Raider
Size medium: 60-70kg, 100cm chest, 87 newtons
