dyno,
Sorry... Didn't see your question.
To answer your question, Maybe... Although I will tell you that this has been tried three times before, with very little results. We can talk about it, we can post, we can try all kinds of things, but until some body comes to me with a minimum of a 10 jacket order paid in full, I can't see it happening. But it you want to try, go ahead. I have just found it very difficult to get people to comment to a group purchase.
Also to answer your question, yes; our poker run jackets can come with a collar, but unless you're wearing a helmet it will not do you any good. They do come in just about any color and can have stripes and logos (embroidery). Let me know what you come up with.

Ben

There is a company in New York who do all sorts of stuff as well as life jackets called tigerperformance - hope that helps?

Yes, all of the jackets are automatic and have never been fired.

I was going to buy auto inflates last year until I remembered what happened when a friend stuffed. Everyone went flying forward against the dash and the back of seat. The auto inflates won't protect you like the other jackets.

What is an acceptable amount of bouyancy for a vest? I noticed that different jackets all listed as type III varied from 15-35 lbs. of bouyancy. How much bouyancy does a lifeline or SRP have?

I was considering the inflatables but rbtnt brings up a good point that they don't offer impact protection.
