life jackets

i have both the hutchwilco and formula brand of lifejacket and find they are both very uncomfortable and very restrictive when you try to turn your head, is there any other brands that aren't as uncomfortable and offer better movement, yet are race legal ?

These are pretty comfortable, meet all the rules and not that expensive! And I've still got a couple in stock.

Roofer - the ones I use are the type you step into, a bit like the inshore guys use. Get in touch with Rob Mcarthy, he can get them (OCRDA on here) for more details.

They are very comfortable and are much better than even the lifeline jackets which are so thick in the front it made it hard to drive!

Sorry, didn't see this post until now.

The Grabners are £175.00 incl vat, postage is normally around £9.00.

A ten percent discount is available, pay for 9 and you'll receive 10

We are also agents for a new range of Italian made orange crash hats, with built in Intercom. Don't have an exact price yet, but will be £300+.

Now before you say that's expensive, ask yourself this, how much is your head worth.

Chaos need not reply, he can use the cardboard box!!!

Do they do just the intercom on its own Tony?
