Hi their

I belive Crewsaver do one that you wear round you waist like a bum bag.

If you need it you open the bad, put over your head and inflate.

Maybe mot ideal but nothing to interfear up top.

Regards Gary

Greetings Willowkis
Have you looked a crewsavers catalogue, I think that did an option that was waisecoat design and there are also models built into jackets for pilots etc.
Also cawesalt do a range that may be helpful.

Thank you very much James and Aligator, I will certainly look into the different type of life jackets.

Aligator, you are not too far from where I live..... where do you take your Rib for fun?

Try a whitewater kayaking life jacket

You might want to try one of these jackets. They are low profile so that they don't bind around the arms, provide plenty of floatation and in the woman's models, they have made anatomical corrections for comfort. These are made to float a swimmer in extreme whitewater, so they should work fine for ribbing. I wear a Stohlquist myself.

Palm is one company in the U.K. that may have something appropriate.

Also try Stohlquist. The mOcean might be appropriate.

Hello Aligator

We spend a lot of time near Poole, we stay near Corfe Castle, I particularly like Kimmeridge Bay. Where abouts do you go? Can you recommend anywhere to take the rib?

we only changed our sib for a rib at the begining of this year, so have stayed pretty much around poole harbour ,swanage bay, studland bay area, as water skiing, ,fishing and now wake boarding can all be done without traveling too far
ventured up to mudeford as we used to use our sib out of mudeford key,
Have you been into poole Harbour and round the islands yet?
brilliant especially now most people have gone home.
are you planing to use your rib all year round or do you lay up for winter?
