Mustang auto inflate vests.

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

I have (6) of them we use when just cruising, but If you know that you are going to be running hard Lifelines are the only thing to wear. I have always been bad about not wearing a life jacket, but I am trying to change my ways.. I think you will like the Inflatables.

I have 4 Lifeline Vests and have worn them exactly ONCE....It is a great vest but NOT unobtrusive. They are doing me ZERO good in the cabin.

I was looking for something that I could slip on and not notice.

At 90+ ,mph; an impact with you and the water is going to rip that thing off before it does you any good.

Probably would be ripped off at 45 mph too.

I got that style, but I got much more high quality ones. Your probably right but its better than me in boardshorts and my old lady in a thong. BTW all your post read like a 75 year old man posted them.......lol

Your avatar does not go with your dorky personality. Just saying.

I am really looking to wear these whenever were just running. If I go on a poker run the Lifelines are the best. But as i stated I hve worn the lifeline ONCE. Mustang makes excellent vests, they are the ones the Sherrifs patrol wears in Collier County FLA (got to see this up close....) and they are very stout.

I agree the Lifeline is what you want overall. But it does me zero good in the cabin.

Don't worry, I balance out. Just ask my GF about my mental age.
