They might be worth trying out, for 8 quid and free delivery it's not much to lose. At least we will be able to give some feedback in the future

Surely the only way to get feedback is if someone jumps in some rough seas with one on? Any takers?

On a more serious note, never heard of them. But that doesn't mean they arn't any good...I'd be safe and pay a few quid more and get some Aquaspec ones - or ACR/Crewsaver ones (seen ACR ones before for about 12). But it isn't as if you can go and complain to the manufacturer if you have already drowned.

dont Lifejacket lights usually have a 5 year battery life. These may work out more expensive as you would need 2 sets to cover the usual five years
