Can I buy the new style RNLI lifejacket anywhere?

Hi - I have recently read an article on the new IRB RNLI lifejacket made by crewsaver which stated they would be available for sale through a 3rd party but I am struggling to find any shops stocking it?

Anybody seen any for sale?

I have emailed crewsaver and am waiting a reply.

Think it's a special design made solely for Rnli at the moment but I would imagine that eventually they may be sold commercially Perhaps through a sole distributor eg ,COSALT as the old style ones were .

As chairman of a Rnli branch we have just finished raising funds to provide funds for 8 New style jackets for Flamborough lifeboat crew that we were tasked to do earlier this year and looks like we may have another donation from a local company to provide 6 more think there going to Phil (Chewys) station at staithes.
Couple of pics that were taken during some of my talks to various public groups and corporate companys explaining developments over the years using the old jackets .
It's still an ongoing nationwide fundraising campaign if anyone's interested .
