Life jackets - Manual & Automatic
I am looking at getting some lifejackets. The kind I want to get are the ones that are switchable between automatic and manual.
Automatic being that it (presumably) inflates when you enter the water.
Manual being that it inflates ONLY when you pull the cord.

[not an auto that has manual overide.]

My understanding is that a particular make has a little plastic tag that changes the jacket to either configuration.

However I cant remember the make?

Anyone remind me of which make.

My old (now retired) one you just unscrewed the "auto triger" module.

Not much use if you want to swap quickly in a lumpy sea...

Probably over the top for what you need
Tactical Waistcoat (Multi Role) | International Safety Products but it is switchable!
