Get the best. What is your life worth? I have personally wrecked water ski jackets, only water skiing at 36 mph. And these are what most people wear in a 80mph boat. No good for what we do.

Thanks for the advise...Looks like the high performance with leg straps will do me good. I can't get the one with the padding on the legs because our seats are so tight I can hardly fit now, I don't know how I would fit with another inch or so of padding around my waste/legs.

money is something that people always put inbetwen a good product or they safety.
when you are going to buy a safety product look for feed bact, lab test,reliability, not price.
after all how much you think your life worth,for you or the people that love you(mom, dad , wife , kid's ,etc)

you guys spend thousands of dollars in boat , so put some hundred on safety, get the best of the line always , is a reason why are the best.

ps, if any one need advice in safety feel free to pm your # i will call you and we talk, raul/orss

Don't go the Cheap route. Buy the Lifelines. I have gotten thrown from a boat at 50mph and ripped my ski jacket off of me. Lifeline or SRP.
