Life Saving Equipment

Can anyone recommend good suppliers for passenger lifejackets, pyros, liferafts and other general safety equipment.

How much should i expect to pay for inflatable lifejackets and 12 man raft (raft on hire)

Just looking for a guide to avoid paying over the odds.

Do passenger lifejackets need to be SOLAS approved for cat4 coding?

Nothing against what has already been posted, but for the life jackets check out the Pamaris Raider. I have over 40 of them and cannot fault them or the company.
