    Riding two on a ski, how do you hold on?

    Hi Guys,

    I just bought an 09 Yamaha two buckle neoprene vest and it is different than the old vest I had in a sense that buckle straps start in the middle of the vest and snaps in the front of course where older vest I had the strap would go all the way back! Now my problem is, when my 6 year old and wife are riding with me, she and my son both would hold on to those straps, but since I do not have those straps, my wife can't sandwich my son between us because she needs to pass him and stretch her hands to get to my waist that is not possible!

    Any other ways you guys use or recommend in a situation like this?

    Sorry for the s tupid question!

    Cheers,
    Reza
    P.S. This vest is very snug, almost it feels small for me and I wear Medium, is that the case with Yamaha vests or they will loosen up a little when used or wet?

    Here are 2 options I found. They both fit over life vest.
    The first is a belt type.

    This one is the vest type.

    My obrien jacket is the same way with no straps in the back to grab onto. My wife just horse collars me if it gets rough or if I get out of line. In the NFL that would be a 15 yard penalty and a first down, but for the wife anything goes.

    That would be riding THREE up, not two

    When riding TWO up, I have the passenger reach under my arms and up to grab onto the shoulder strap area of my PFD front panel. That brings the passengers elbows in near my sides, and gives them a firm hold on me.

    It also brings their body up closer behind me, so we move more together. When I lean, they naturally lean too since their forearms are attached to my PDF up high.
