anyone got one of the hybrid Baltic lifejackets?

They are expensive... just wondered if any of the Trade Members are doing any offers on them,
and if any one was using one, then what they thought about them?

cheers

I looked at one of these a while back - does anyone know what the difference between the Baltic Rib Hybrid and Baltic Rescue Hybrid actually is (other than about 200)?

We use these on our rescue craft, inherent bouyancy is very good and the build quality is very impressive, they have stood up to three years worth of rough usage and still look and feel as good as the day they were purchased.

Cheap to service too, there is a place distributor on the Hamble.

Yes I spoke with baltic and they say...
Rib single chamber - Rescue twin chamber with overpressure valve.
The rescue also has a dump valve on the tube so you can deflate the life jacket rapidly to say get under water. This dump tube also has a mouth piece so you can re-inflate the life jacket orally if you wish.

Most of the other features are identical.
