I too am going to be in the market for some gear shortly, and since I'm also going to be paying out a lot of initial setup expenses (towbar, trailer boot, etc etc etc) the price on the flotation suit appeals. Does it float you 'right way up' ie like a lifejacket? or does it require you to be conscious like a buoyancy aid?

no but the big advantage is you can swim back to the boat and it keeps you warmer in water than a LJ
been over in suit and was able to swim back and only my legs up to crutch were wet upper body remained dry even tho went in head first

never miss an opportunity
