Hi
These are worth looking at ; a good range and offers if you buy 4 I think .... at least they did when I bought some last year.

http://www.lifejackets.co.uk/

I went for the 275N and they are really comfortable

I've just bought a set of jackets (and some electonics) from lifejackets.co.uk recently - they have a flat rate postage of 7.50 to Ireland! The kit was ordered on a Sunday and arrived Thursday. A very minor (but potentially problematic) issue was resolved quickly, cheerfully and efficiently by their sales team. The deal is: buy four jackets and they include one re-arming kit and a carry-all (it is good quality and mine holds six jackets at a pinch). I bought from them a few years back and the Marinepool jackets are holding up well. Buy with confidence!

Hi
I just bought 6 jackets from Lifejackets .co.uk and 4 in for service.

I needed some help in specification. we have found we could'nt get some jackets small enough (when lightly clothed), so we now have adult small belt and adult large belt and also lifejackets (275N) for wearing with dry suit.
very helpfull thise guys.

cheers Paul

Your post suggests you're looking for the cheapest jackets. Be aware that in order to get costs down, manufacturers leave off things which we should consider to be more than optional extras - for example, crutch straps and spray hoods. I recommend very strongly that you buy jackets that have straps and spray hoods (read Ouzo report if you need more convincing)

Unless you and your crew are wearing loads of additional kit, or clothing that may change the positioning of your overall buoyancy (inc drysuits which could hold air around your feet and legs and cause them to float higher than a natural position), there is probably little need to look at 275N jackets

Why do you want a harness? Hope you're not planning to clip yourself on to a RIB

His post suggests he bought Crewsaver, I can think of cheaper jackets (actually, I bought them...) but I wouldn't question the build.
