Type III Foam Vests
I'd like to buy 3 good foam vests to complement our collection of 3 self inflating vests.
1. To have 3 more PFD's to fulfill the CG requirement without using those dorky 'yoke' vests that everyone hates and hates wearing.
2. The inflating vests are fine for when you fall overboard and are in the drink waiting for the boat to come pick you back up. I see the foam ones being worn when there is a worry (however small) that there might not be a boat to circle back.
I'm looking to spend about $40-50 for each one.
Can anyone suggest a good one? My eyes quickly glaze over when confronted with the sheer volume of vests on offer.
Vest style - orange w/ reflective tape - whistle lanyard - pockets?
FYI - I plan to sew some canvas bags to keep them clean so they can stay in the cockpit locker and still be presentable to a guest.
