I would get one with a hammar unit, less likely to falsely trigger in really wet conditions when in use or stuffed wet into a bag due to the mechanism design. the cylinder is held within the bladder, so a little more difficult to change as you’ve to leak test after placement.
loads of new designs around that are much more comfortable and less restrictive than before, so if you can try them on somewhere you’re more likely to get something that you’ll wear.
Doobry is fishing in the Republic and like jackets are mandatory here for occupants of boats of less than 7 metres length.Something to bear in mind for those boat fishing and wearing l/j's which is pretty well mandatory on water supply reservoirs.

A fellow member in a fly tying group advised boat anglers to install a rope with a weighted loop attached to a seat before commencing angling. The idea is that the loop is accessible to someone in the water and that they can pull it overboard and use it as a stirrup to get back in the boat. It needs to be adjusted in length to suit the individual angler. I intend to use one if we are allowed out again this year.
There was one thing that the video above in the sea survival school missed out - cold water . I’ve done the MCA sea survival school at Fleetwood , and the wave pool was a pleasant temperature . Going under cold water and it’s a different matter you might be in such shock youre not going to calmly tread water . The life jacket will get you face up in seconds . If you end up two or more people in the water , all on your back , form a chain by legs under the armpits of the man in front and wrap around , then supported by your life jackets paddle with 4 or 6 arms etc like a centipede on its back
these ones here ?https://www.crew-safe.co.uk/acatalog/Parmaris-Life-Jacket-Raider.htmlTurning you face up is a standard feature of a life jacket.
Personally I wouldn't go past crewsaver, for around £50 you'll get a auto 150n lj + manual rip cord with a pair of crotch straps.
I JUST BOUGHT 2 OF THESE A BIT MORE EXPENSIVE BUT AS YOU SAYWHATS A LIFE WORTH,No
Crewsaver. As spelt.
that one is a clear knock-off, trying to pretend it is similar.
it’s your life (plus those of your fellow fishermen): not worth cutting corners and getting a cheap lifejacket
