We have Spinlock Deckvest inflatables that we wear when weather is rough. They come standard with a harness buckle, knife, whistle, beacon and spray hood. They also have crotch straps to keep the inflated vest from riding over your shoulders if you are in the drink, although, some find those uncomfortable and can easily be removed. They are, however, a very important safety feature as all life vests want to do this. The idea is to keep as much of your body out of the water as possible.
Some models have a pocket for a PLB. Personally, I find the unit to be the most comfortable as the part around my neck is rounded and doesn't chafe. We also have a couple of West Marine inflatables that I wouldn't want to wear for very long.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
