Did the last 2 seasons with the westmarine 60 buck pfds. They work fine. A little on the stiff side. Im not sure what starts to smell bad but i think its them getting wet again. So along with the list of other normal random stuff, I want new ones. Obviously the zhik is on the top of the list. I can run to annapolis and pick them up. But anyone have anything they like or that i should consider? Is the difference between the eu spec and the us spec anything i should consider. (original) p2 vs p3? We're mostly doing recreational stuff with a tiny bit of racing so saving the 1/2 oz isnt something im worrying about. Are those side pockets vs the envelope style one better or worse? Do you even use them? Are they both good with a harness? Guessing they are designed for use with the zhik harness, which i use.
