Default Life Jackets and where to buy tem

OK. Ok. I missed out on Albert's Poker Run Lifeline life jackets. Someone snuck in there before me. But, I still need two cool poker run life jackets for the summer. Does anybody have any for sale or does anybody know where I can get some... that is without paying for new Lifeline's. They are definitely over priced.

I ordered the Rock n Rescue ones just like in the picture from the previous post. They are ok..they dont look as good as they do in the picture. They are "average" quality, but CG approved.

Thanks Cord...

Yes SRP does offer PokerRun Lifejacket starting around $200+. They are very high quality and we can add colors and embroidery logos also.

Take Care, Ben

Ben - I checked out your webstite and looked at the Green jacket with the 2 pull tabs at the bottom. Does the jacket have flotation and then when you pull the tabs you get more flotation. What's the story here Ben?

Can you get a collar like the lifelines have?

What about floating you upright if your boat flips?

I have two of these and I dont think you can beat them for the price..... I might wear it 2-4 times a year and there plenty good for that.

Semper Fi,
Unfortunately no "ballistic" impact PokerRun jacket is USCG approved (that I know of). All you need is to have a orange standard cheapy on board to be legal. There are USCG approved high speed jackets out there, most are water ski or bass boat jackets and really wouldn't help in a high speed accident. Hope that helps.

Spectre Man,
The jackets that you are looking at are AirVest for canopy and racing applications. You can use them for open cockpit boats although they provide very little protection from impact. They are designed to be deployed after you are out of the canopy and are on the surface. They have two bladders in them, hence the two pull tabs. Hope that helps too.
