We've got a Crewsaver jacket that looks identical to that one. I wonder whether Remploy made them for Crewsaver.

Yesterday, the coastguard called this notice during the routine announcements. They must consider it to be fairly serious.

I've never seen a Crewsaver lifejacket with a "zip-closure running around the outside edge" so I doubt that they are at all similar.

Yeh, you're dead right, it's a Sowester Osprey. My mistake.

We've got a few at work - they're plastic outers though, and automatic.

edit: look @ Voyager type.
