PFD for inshore/offshore racing

Recommended Posts

I do not use inflatable one,  a harness and vest type.

Crewsaver looks nice and in good price range.

I use a buoyancy aid inshore (spinlock, but whatever is comfortable for you) and a spinlock hammar for offshore. I find the inflatables far too snaggable to wear inshore.

I came here to post the same question. I have been looking at the Spinlock Deckvest LITE+, which has a harness and can be fitted with a spray hood and MOB beacon. Les expensive than the 5D and it seems to have most of the features an occasional offshore races would need. But there are also items from Crewsaver, Mustang Survival and West Marine. The Crewsaver 40 Pro seems very comperable tot eh Deckvest LITE+.

 

Has anyone seen a feature / price comparison?
