mustang with built in harness and auto inflate when it gets wet. comfortable and safe. not cheap but what's your life worth when you need it most. I have 4 Mustangs onboard (or did have when I had the Beneteau), so I speak from preference and experience even if limited.

Mustang !

Mustang is the best IMHO.

Good company with good quality practices. They have been a comercial industry leader for 30- 40 years.

Any pfd from a well-recognized manufacturer, as long as it has a tether ring. I use a Mustang and find it quite comfortable.
