Offshore Lifejacket

Looking to buy a really good lifejacket like the Off shore RNLI use. Crewsaver wont seem to sell them to general public ,I have tried. Would like it to have permanent boyancy built in as well as inflation to top up to 220 ish newtons as per rnli spec. Any ideas on manufacturers/make/model/price thanks Geoff

i thought that the offshore ones they were the same as the crewsaver 275 N ones except they wont have rnli stamped on the retro tape ,

the other crewsaver ones with inherant bouyancy that the inshore lifeboat crews wear are availeble from cosalt safety and retail at around £550 plus twat ,well that was last years price ,,,just had a quick look on cosalts website and they go under the name of rib inshore lifejacket as used by rnli and a run down on specs ect .dont look under crewsaver section it just gives info on sailing and yak stuff look under air foam lifejackets ,,,,,,,,Rib Manual Lifejacket [ quote from the section ]
This lifejacket has been developed from the lifejackets supplied to the RNLI and has been purchased by many of the coastal rescue services operating around the UK and overseas.

It really does bug me when you can't find the price for stuff anywhere online and the manufacturer won't sell direct. I assume this is the case for these?

Most times this happens I buy a different product.

I have used the Baltic Rescue for 4 years which is heavier version of the RIB jacket and can highly recommended it.

Picked up 26 Baltic rescue lifejackets today to send home with the ex RNLI Atlantic´s

ICE-SAR is phasing out the Crewsaver

Here is the spec for RESCUE

The Rescue Lifejackets have "snorkel" for adjustable buoyancy - there closer to the £450 - £500 mark....

I been told they are quite heavy to wear...but has not seen one close up.

The other solution is to buy a buoyancy suit/ jacket and they wear a lifejacket as well...

Baltic do nice floatation clothing too.

The RESCUE is not as bulky as the RNLI Crewsaver
