Default lifeline jacket ...

HELP

i'm considering running my boat in the LOTO shootout. says you have to wear a life preserver capable of 100mph impact. i'm assuming this means a lifeline jacket ? where would i find one on the internet ? borrow or buy ?

Recommendation: Torso suit (no straps to squeeze your balls) with flak jacket reinforcement from http://www.securityraceproducts.com - Scott LaPointe. $500+ . Made to measure. Great company.

They'll have loaner's you can borrow at the safety check. Just have to leave your driver's lic with them.

I ran through once for the photo op

thanks for the help.... i don't think i'm gonna spend 500 bucks on one though.. as i don't plann on doing any racing.. this just may be a good oppurtunity for me and my boat. and no one i know could use it to .... i'm 6' 280 lbs and wear about a 56-58 jacket... <--- hard to fit

but thanks for the insight.
