Default Affordable Life Jackets

I want to get two poker run color coordinated life jackets that are reasonably priced. Let say in the neighborhood of $100 to $175. I checked with LifeLine and they want $380 for each jacket plus additional money for the name embroidered. That's $800 for 2 life jackets. Based on the current market and technology of other company's products I think this is unreasonable (unless OSO members can get a discount).

Can anybody recommend any other manufacturers who do a good job in my price range?

Spectre Man,
No, I have been out for 7 years now! Time flys. I did respond to your PM last week--did you get it? Were you in the Service?

Nope. I guess my Spam Blocker did its horrible job and flagged your email as garbage. Sorry about that.

My son is in the Marines and just got transferred to Rochester, NY. I can't think of a worse billet. Cold!

Lifelines are the best and they will hold up under a hi-speed encounter.Remember "You get what you pay for" These jackets will upright you should you be uncontious. I just bought five with the spectre logo,I felt if I could afford a boat like this I good spend a little more for safety. Trust me in todays legigatious society you might want to be 100% with the safety issue. Thats why I bought 5 one for everyone,if you dont want to wear one thats your choice but you were offered one. Untill its law I respect there freedom of choice..
