Compass (www.compass24.com) are pretty good: 39 if i recall for a compass compact which is much more comfortable than the ones all-gadjets do: I have both and there's no comparison.

If you need to buy a set of jackets for your boat - i dont think you can beat this

http://shop.lifejackets.co.uk/acatal...ed_prices.html

I was about to order a set for my boat - but ill hang on now to see if anyone else comes up with anything better.

Also - im off to the southhampton boat show in 4 weeks time - does anyone know if you can usually get good buys there - (like half price stuff)

I need a wakeboard, 4 lifejackets, a towable ring thingy, some bouyancy aids, etc...

Trago's or Macsalvors! You kent beat 'em, ken ee boys?? Just ask Kernow or Roy :-) Actually, I've usually been fairly disappointed at the lack of deals available at the Southampton show. My local chandlers ( The Boathouse, Penryn) does better. The only advantage is the amount of stuff and choice on offer.

try this-entry level is 28.99 plus postage-I've got a couple of them and they are comfy enough.
