Buying lifejackets for coding

I am looking to buy 10 lifejackets for our RIB suitable for coding. I want auto's that don't go off when they get wet just when they go under if there is such a thing.

Any recommendations where to buy at a good price for bulk order?

Thanks

We bought Parmaris 150N Raiders, adults & children, both have proved very good and just been serviced. The agent reported that all were in as new condition and only 3 of 44 needed any extra parts.
Even with our stuffing, none have inflated despite significant use

Thanks
Hydro static units are the article you seek, they only operate when immersed as opposed to ones lying on the deck that get hosed accidently. The ones I pm'd you about are standard autos.

Life Jackets

I bought from Ocean Safety too and found the Commodore really good product. Wouldn't hurt giving them a call. David Mc
