I picked up a Crewsaver Crewfit plus 190N from Mailspeed last month, really pleased with it.

I would agree with that. Fantastic lifejacket, really comfortable, and comes with all the extras included (spray hood, light, crutch straps).

Not cheap though.

It will come down to what you mean by a "great" lifejacket.....comfort, style, price, value for money, gizmos etc....

I'm quite comfortable with my Seago Olympic, but others may find that a bit pedestrian / not gucci enough.

I like the look of the Baltics, but they are megabucks. We have "bog standard" ocean safety autos, & they are cheap, simple & very comfortable to the point you don't know you're wearing 'em. When they come around for replacement, I'd probably look at the Baltics or Spinlocks

They had an extra 10% off too for Bank Hol so I was very pleased.

They are also on eBay for 95 with free post.
