Neo 100 MPH rated vest
I'm looking to get a new life vest and looking to get something that is 100 mph rated. I am having trouble finding them let alone one I like. Anyone have suggestions for a good 100 mph neoprene vest?

if you find them it might be as much as your jetski, im sure the guys that race rocket boats have something but nothing to what your looking to wear, why you need one so tuff

I have never heard of a 100 mph rated neoprene vest.
Do a google search for Lifeline Lifejackets. They build them to fit you. Not cheap, but they're the best.

I was looking into the same thing when I was looking at vests, I check into the offshore powerboat racing vests, the problem is that they're so bulky and would seem hard to swim in and have a lot of drag in the air.
The other thing that is harder' to find is a nice vest that will float you face up automatically if you knocked out.
I ending up settling on a Oneil water ski vest because it fit's tight, easy to swim in and gotta be able to handle some speed because what skier's and wake boards gotta get going pretty good.

I read several years ago about one of Slippery's PFD being rated at 100 MPH.

None of the 100 mph "ski" vests are designed to protect the wearer in a 100mph crash. They are only rated for holding together at that speed. (structual integrity). If you want face up floatation, you need bulk. No way to get around it.

Slippery makes a nasty vest(matrix line) that matches up well with most of the current colors of the sea doo RXP/T's....
But I have to go back a few posts and agree with sticky and ask....
Why do you need one so tuff????
