Integral or separate harness is a personal thing. I like the convenience of the integral - less to take on and off when nature calls and it is much quicker when you need to get dressed in a hurry. The D-ring on the separate harness tends to get buried under the webbing of the inflatable (I've done it both ways). I also imagine that the tether shackle would get buried a little deeper if the vest was inflated. I always figured if I needed to be clipped in, I'd probably want some sort of extra floatation in case I had to disconnect from the boat. Again, a personal choice. I have an inflatable with harness that I've worn crossing several oceans and have grown quite fond of. It's dirty, has 5200 globs on it and Mrs B wants me to get a nice fancy replacement but it has become a part of me and I can't get rid of it.
