    Amen, we are all guilty even in our family cruisers!! It is just like we all say, this is a fun run not a race....but BTW who made it there first
    Lifeline or SRP for me Lifeline saved me once and hoping to never test it again

    MAdtunnel, which Mustangs did you get? Do they have leg straps or will you add? also, are these designed to turn you face up if unconscious or do you know?

    those mustang jackets look like the ski- fishing jackets with a small neckroll-collar that are sometimes available at wallyworld. mercury marine had some at their dockstore, i got one for christmas several years ago ,has leg straps also.they claimed 100 mph approved... they do NOT compare with a lifeline or srp even tho they are coasguard approved.i sometimes wear my merc jacket due to the comfort factor,my srp is somewhat comfortable, alot better than the lifelines i have had in the past . as stated in this thread, any lifejacket is better than none ,YOU GOTTA WEAR IT!!kinda reminds me of our florida helmet law as i see many riders without one ,or some salidbowl at best , or a helmet straped to the seat as the squid blazes down the road....i dont like pain or sand in my face,i wear an arai.bottom line is as stokernick states above, life is worth more than a few hundred dollars, well said nick!

    I purchased the ones you have pictured on post 44 or so. no leg straps but may add them? I do not believe they will float you face up.
    As mentioned earlier I DO NOT intend on driveing a hundred mile an hour evry time i get in my boat. It has nothing to do with is it good enough Cause I believe the Mustangs are good enough for the type of gatherings I plan on attending. If I plan on makeing several hundred mile an hour passes then I will where a life line.

    Let me ask all you Life line guys something. How many people ride with you when you run high speeds?

    How many life line jacets do you have in your boats?

    Do your passengers have on life lines or do you just give them good enough jackets? I am pretty sure every one on here is on some sort of boat budget or another. If I can get 2 jackets that are rated at 100mph for the price of one then call me cheap for at least trying to protect my passenger that happens to be my nephew. Yes that blow over was a terrible accident but what if he had on another brand of jacket and still walked away then what would be said. The bottom line is where a life jacket period.
