What good is a manual if you are knocked unconscious? Aside from lower cost, what advantage would a manual have over an auto? Are the autos highly reliable or are they prone to premature inflation, or not inflating at all when needed?

Mustang makes some excellent floater suits. I haven't yet splurged on one, but this is probably the best time of year for me to buy one. Up until now I've been using a fairly basic Coast Guard approved vest style PFD, which wouldn't provide much warmth in cold water.

OceanEco, What do your clients wear?

I always wear an auto jacket but depends on the weather and what I'm doing as to what else. Wet suit, waterproofs, jeans and t-shirt, shorts etc.
This time of year I would probably wear a cabin!
