The crotchstraps are stowed in little pockets on the back of the vest.

Best equipment?....Kill switch/s. That way if you goon it up nobody else gets whacked by a runaway boat, just you. Otherwise any vest is better than none should you choose to wear it. Start there then go for the top notch stuff.

I ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS wear a kill switch. My boat is also equipped with a passenger kill switch, and my wife wears hers too...

Anyone have any links to aftermarket kill switches. My checkmate is an 88 that didnt come with one from the factory. Thanks

PM Cuda, he has done that, and he put the info on one of his posts. But you know Cuda, that would be a zillion posts to go through so contact him directly

If anyone is interested in the Mustang 4600s, and doesnt mind the tri color ones \red\yellow\purple, http://www.c-mesales.com/ has them for $72. I have 3 of these and wear them a lot. Maybe the pic on the website is old tho. looks like mustang only offers the 2 solid colors on their website. http://www.mustangsurvival.com/produ...uct.php?id=407

Kill switches are a really good idea. A friend of mine got killed because of not having them. He was thrown out of a boat that then circled around and ran over him. On a large lake, if the boat doesn't hit something, it's coming back.
