The market is slow. Those jackets actually come with Cigarette's from the factory. They are just suspender jackets. Another company is Mustang. I believe Tiger performance sells them. They are around $150. We looked at Skaters today. Someone needs a great Cig!! It's a Skater Nation!! Just try a google or search on here for locations to but. I dont really know of any off the top of my head.

I had links in my favorites but I can't find them. But I think this is a couple of them:

West Marine sells them. I bought some of the automatic inflatable type last season and they were a little over $100 bucks. They also sell the ones that you have to pull the cord to inflate for a little less coin.

Crapsey, I agree with you it is important to be safe, however there are different levels needed for different times. I have Lifelines for the hardcore runs and regular vests for cruising.
Poker runs are moving away from the inflatable life vests, so keep that in mind when buying vests. Also, Lifelines are NOT Coast Guard approved so you must have enough CGA vests as well as lifelines. I have four Lifelines to run with next year, 6 wakeboard style vests, and three inflatables. I can only seat five so this should cover all shapes and sizes. I bought these wakeboard vests from Overton's. They are $29.95 and well built. I have an additional 4 of these for my Sea-Doo jet boat.

These Sterns Trophy Series Jackets are nice jackets for the money. Leg Straps and rated for high speed impacts.
