200MPH Lifeline Life Vest
Anyone that is going fast should look at this company for life vest. They make vests for the Drag Boats that go over 200 MPH.
Here is the information on the Lifeline Compvest.
Tested up to 200MPH
1000 Point Cordura Nylon
1 1/2" webbing (centerbelt, adjustable side straps and leg straps) so the vest will not come off your body when you crash
1 1/2" plastic hardware
2" close cell foam in front panel and 1/2" in back panel.
Flak or impact material throughout the back, ribcage, chest and front area
Nylon front zipper
Side adjustments on the side, if you loose or gain some weight
2 1/2" collar with 1/2" close cell foam
Killswitch hookup with D-rings on either side
Please be advised all of our jackets are custom made and I would need basic measurements from individuals. ( Height, Weight, Chest, and Waist.)

we use these running in 100 mph + Hydrostreams and extreme offshore boats. They are GREAT vests. But unless soemthing has changed, these vests are NOT USCG approved, so if you get a water cop who is a jerk you will get a ticket.

They are working on getting them approved for USCG. Reason being is that they are custom made to fit the buyer, they are not mass produced. When I talked to them last year they were in the process to get them approved. They are used in offshore poker runs all the time here in CA. I would rather be fighting the ticket in court than fighting for my life in the hospital because I wore a $50.00 jacket.

BTW, I'm aware of the claimed reasons for them not being approved. whats the reason for the Poker Run versions not being approved? They are NOT custom made. They are adjustable. I have 2 brand new last year ones sitting here.

You "can" order a custom jacket. You can also order one in a "normal" sizing, like sm/med/lg etc. That is NOT custom. (unless you call it custom because it has straps that can be adjusted to different people) she also posted a picture that left out the fact that they are NOT USCG approved. Even lifelines website says that. http://www.lifelinejackets.com/pleasure_jackets.cfm
For people that are pushing the envelope on PWC speeds, these may be great. For a normal PWC they are way over priced, and way more than you will ever need. The Sea Doo vest have a 100 mph impact rating.
