I've used similar Mustangs for 10 years and wear all the time when underway. Boat cops also like seeing them being worn. They figure you have some sense and not worth screwing with. Well worth the investment. Lifelines offer some impact resistance but both are the same class and will keep an unconscious persons head out of the water. I sometimes forget to take mine off when ashore because they are so un-intrusive.

I bought 2 Mustang style vest for a poker run last as they were required while doing the run. The Donzi I bought in early spring came with 4 of the same type other then you have to pull the tab to inflate where as my other 2 are automatic. Great vest and comfortable.

I like them because they take up so little room to store (and my 29' Fountain does NOT have excess cabin room).
I have two 100 m.p.h. vests (Slippery When Wet) left over from my jet ski days. This is what I wear as they have a D-ring
for the safety lanyard (which I always use). I ask my passengers if they want a life jacket and tell them if they say
no we won't be going over 30 m.p.h. That works too -

Mustangs in my fishing boat, Lifelines in my performance boat. Lots more (sharp and/or pointy ) crap to hit on the way out of the PB than the FB.....

End'ed up getting two more so the whole crew can have them on during poker runs. Only downside is I'm a bigger guy that works out a lot and the thing barely fits around my chest. Probably good it fits tight though.

All these boating accidents recently have got me concerned. I was looking for something unobtrusive.

What's the impact rating on the Mustangs? I searched forever to get reasonably priced jackets that were impact rated to 100mph but like everyone else, I don't wear them as often as I should.. I've hit the water at 70+ water skiing before and had my jacket disintegrate. Luckily I was in shallow enough water to stand. I got spun so many times and so hard that by the time I slowed down, I didn't know which way was up. So I want to make sure the jacket will stay together at top speed.
