Is it the Revere that has the hydrostatic and the crotch strap?

No, the Comfortmax is not hydrostatic, I don't think.

Correct, not hydrostatic (just uses a dissolving pellet), and they don't have the crotch strap.

Hey guys, I would like to just say that there are many PFD inflatables out there and most use the same tech on the inflater. I researched them all as best I could and found that one option I was looking for! A pocket on the outer shell for my new SPOT tracker.
I bought a BLUESTORM PRO SAIL33 from sailingpfd.com the price was right and the SPOT fits perfect in the pocket. They had several models all with a pocket and USCG approved. Oh if you don't know what a SPOT is you should. They have it on the site also. I hope that this long winded message saves someone life. I know my wife insists
we wear um-smart lady!

Thanks for the info on Bluestorm pfd's. Does your wife wear one? How tall is she if she does?

I'm having trouble finding one for my petite size (5'2" and shrinking...), as most of them are made for taller people than me.

Thanks.

The Pro sail would be the one I would recommend for you. It is an Auto with a smaller frame and would fit your size nicely. My wife wears one and she is a smaller frame lady.
She is about 5"4" and it fits her without looking a bit too long! The

The Pro sail33 and the Extreme Sail 33 are made shorter and smaller to allow for less restriction and getting in the way of rigging. The things are great. That kid Zac Sunderland is now on the site as someone you is using the Bluestorm. Good Luck and Happy Sailing. SailingPFD.com/SaveMeGPS.com - Home

I am looking at the x-treme as we plan to go offshore in a year or two. Any chance you could measure the length of your wife's ? I've written to the company, headquarters in the US are not far from where we live, and asked where I can go to try one on.

Thanks for all the help! Rani

Now that I own autos, I'd rethink them. From the Veracruz race, note that one survivor made it ONLY because his autoinflator failed. One of the other survivors was below and didn't have his on - and that saved HIS life too. Some thoughts that the sole casualty may have had his on... BTW, skip the first minute or 2 while they set up.
