Looking for new lifejackets in Cornwall

I use Crewsaver but recently bought my daughter a KRU jacket as it was a better child fit for her than the Crewsaver, I was surprised how well made they were and very reasonably priced when you look at what Chandlers charge you now just for a replacement gas bottle

Have a look here, about 49 for a human depending o whether you want auto manual or harness Kru - life jackets Manual & Automatic lifejackets, pet floats, Safety harness

Cheers for that - looking for auto harness jackets and they certainly are well priced. Good to have a thumbs up - I've had crewsaver in past as well as Seago but never felt they were really comfortable. Anyone know if Black Dog Marine at Looe stock a range - be handy to go and try some for fit

Macsalvors at Redruth might be worth a call Macsalvors or if you can arrange day release from Bodmin a trip would be better loads of boaty bits

Thanks Kernow - road trip to Redruth sounds like a plan - better not mention it to herself or she will impound the credit cards. Are the natives friendly down there these days?
