Do you guys use paddling PFDs? Can you give me some recommendations?

How about this?

PFD... Personal Flotation Device

Looks awful pricey. Our Hobie (Made by Stohlquist) vest for cat sailing is $89.99 list.

I use an Extrasport PFD that is a paddling one. It has pockets for my radio, whistle, etc. The short height like paddling ones, or likely the Hobie one listed above make sitting on the tramp or using a trap harness much easier then a waterskiing style jacket. Extrasport also makes a PFD designed for women with padding strategically removed in the front for their comfort. Works fine for guys also. Finding a comfortable PFD makes people more likely to wear them more, which to me is the point of having them.
