Ok - very comfortable for everyday use then?....I am in the market of new lifejacket.

Needs to be 275N ish, since I wear Dry Suit AND fits 6 ft 2 inch,150Kgs in weight! So serious thinking buying the RIB version....but still trying to get round wearing something that people can see, deflated....Black/Blue is my colour!

People should be able to see the RIB version at RIBex as the voluntary rescue team which will be on display will be wearing them.

I prefer bright colours on lifevests, have also old Musto which has yellow shield/cover

RIBs and ribbing is my life

you could try williamsons of oldham ,they deal with surplus ex fire /search and rescue equipment and have a marine section ,last time i was over there couple of years back they had a load of various types of lifejackets /bouyancy jackets some never used ,,i was like a kid in willy wonkas chocolate factory looking at what they have in there.
