Default Where can I find USCG and impact rated life jackets?

When I bought my boat I found some Sea Doo life jackets that were impact rated to 100mph. I've been looking to buy more and I can't find any USCG rated jackets over 50mph. When I was younger and healed faster I used to do some high speed skiing and other stunts and have hit the water over 70 and I had a jacket disintegrate on me so I'm a little paranoid. I know Lifeline has some great products they're just not USCG. Does anyone know where I can find a quality USCG rated life jacket?

I've got a few 100mph vests from Jetpilot. They are side entry from their PWC line. They still make the same vests today, but they no longer say 100mph on them for some reason.

Go with the Lifeline, and just keep some cheap USCG approved jackets in the boat. The only reason that Lifeline jackets are not approved is they take too long to put on.

I can't vouch for it. Anyone can put a guarantee on the box.

I have had two of those Mustang Vests for a number of years. Well made and comfortable. Fortunately I not been thrown out of the boat so cannot vouch for the 100 mph impact rating. Mustang has always had a good reputation.
