Re: New West Marine Lifejacket?
Having red ones would make sense, as the patrol officers at my marina wear red ones. I had only seen the orange one as marked for commercial use while packaged new. But the types you mention would make sense. They could one off many of those for the small market share that they cover with out issues. Gvmnt agency's a lot of time order well in advance, so once they know the order timeline, they order, and the product gets there when it gets there!
I have two of the pill ones, and 4 of the hydro ones. Worth the cost in my book. Altho I do have a couple of cheaper $$$$ cost brand ones for extra's too.
