That's a really good question. Mustang do an add-on crotch strap that works with their jackets and probably others as well. Most European life jackets either come with a crotch strap and spray hood, or they are options. I don't understand why the U.S. manufacturers don't do the same.

It was a few years ago now but I brought mine back with me from a trip. It is made by Seago, is great quality and cost less than anything I found this side of the Atlantic. Maybe the market is bigger over there.
