Primaris Lifejackets

Does anyone know of this brand & its quality / robustness. I've been offffered 2 auto-inflate jobbies, but the lifejacket is actually a separate piece to the exterior which is fastend by some very thin pieces of velco up the outside seam and across the back of the collar.

Mrs T wants an automatic LJ for when - I mean IF - of she has an unplanned disembarkment without notice, but I'm wondering if these Primaris LJs will stand up to the normal wear & movement without coming apart.

Am I being over cautious because it's not a brand I know?

We use Parmaris Jackets have had them for years, they get a lot of use (Not Inflated use just worn) and have a life with us of around 6 years before we deem them "past it" so in leisure use I forsee no problem. We use them with our style crotch straps too.

We have over 48 Parmiris Raiders in use comercially, on and off 5 times a day and up to seven hours daily.
I would not hesitate to recommend these to others for leisure or commercial use and indeed have done, with no negative comments
