I would trust the 190N argument better if it wasn't that the only people who are claiming it are the only company selling 190N jackets. Do you think they would supply 150/190/275N jackets and rearm kits for a Ribnet trial with floatation suits and drysuits?
Thigh strap is a better name for them. Basically there are two straps, one on either side of the "vest" which hang down, attached to them in a strap that you fasten around the top of your leg. The trouble I find is, if you bend down the bit around your leg drops down, which can make standing back up again tricky. Likewise they tend to pull your trouser legs up as well which is very irritating! I currently don't have any fitted to my Spinlock, but have considered taking the ones of my now retired Crewsaver 250 and putting them on. You can also buy those as a separate accessory.

Safety aside, the Spinlock does look uber cool, and is pretty comfortable to wear (unlike a lot of jackets doesn't chafe around the neck)
