    I'm also on the market for a new vest. Summer Jet Ski Riding would be its sole purpose. What's everyone using / recommending? (it has to look good!)

    so i guess if your looking for a bit of style its either Jet Pilot, Slippery or Quakesense? I really dont need a rescue type jacket or the tan lines to go with them but i appreciate the safety aspect.

    I like the Quakesense but i cant really make out what it really looks like on the web page...can anyone post a pic if they have one?

    The neoprene one I am wearing is quite thin, with 2 webbin straps and quick release buckles. The second picture the other quakysense lifejackets are thicker with fabric sheaths... a standard Type III I think these are 3-4 webbing straps with quick release buckles. 2 different styles...
