Youth PFD with Integral harness?

We have two little girls and are heading out in a year. I'm looking for a good comfortable life vest with an integral harness for them? Any ideas? They are both in the 50lb range now. I assume i'll get something that's in the 50-90lb range.

Any recommendations on good comfortable jackets and harnesses for children in general?

Re: Youth PFD with Integral harness?

We have done the same search and not found a PFD with harness. Ended up getting a harness for underway or on deck at night. and a PFD for other times.

There has been a similar discussion here: Children and Offshore life jacket/harness Safety

There seem to be plenty of good harnesses on the market. Make sure it has a crotch strap, kids slip straight out otherwise.

The littlest admiral has this one: Baltic - Junior Safety Harness - 0125 forget where I actually bought it. He is 25kg and grew to 10 ft tall the first time he strapped on and went to the bow by himself underway. Has no complaints about wearing it but gives me grief if I'm not tethered on as well.
