How about something like military aircrew wear for when it is warm.


It is a waistcoat made out of a mesh material (so not as to get too hot).
There is a built in Lifejacket and storage for a first aid/survival kit, radio/beacon and mini flares. Everything for the self respecting Man-Overboard

Design Mulling

Apart from the niche market for full on raiding party clobber, in which direction would the RIB orientated market go? Smock or zipped jacket? Musto do some cracking practical looking smocks ideal for more movement etc but at a price.

Smock style lends itself to economy and ease of production but if sealed isnt ideal for pub sessions or schmoozing totty.

Right then, I'll get the markers out and knock summut up over the weekend, pdf it for you all to have a look at and away we'll go (ish). Next bit will be selecting the models/high energy location for the fotoshoot.

Is there a chance that this thing can go into production?

Sounds a cracking idea, any chance when I turn it inside out it becomes a dinner jacket?
Then I can get off the boat and head straight into the casino ready to save the world!!
Oh sorry am in a wibbly wobbly world of my own
