I did a test on these and I have now moved over from the crewsaver 190n due to the comfort.

I also agree the customer service from spinlock is great. The only downside is price but for me they are the best by quite a long way.

For me it should be that comfy you should not know you have it on and a hood is not an option it is vital having used 2 in an emergency. so what ever you buy try it on first and make sure it has a knife and hood.

I like the Spinlocks too! a lot of 275 jackets ( particularly the crewsaver} put a pressure on your neck which can leave you with an aching neck if you have used it all day. the Spinlocks design doesn't do that.

It's been decades since I worried about my image but if I did then they look kinda snazzy too

Have any of the people raving about spinlock tried them in the water? I recall one of the sea safety instructors on here was less impressed once he'd worn one 'in anger'? Just wondering if that view is shared by others?
