Does anyone have any reviews of which jackets are most comfortable?

Thanks Sticko we have looked at several different types some are heavier than others. I will have to check it out at Academy.

The Onyx is quite comfortable. However, the instructions mention automatic inflating in moist conditions and that is what happened to me enough times that I quit buying the CO2 cartridges. Too many mornings I would head out in the fog and the jacket would inflate scaring the &#&# out of me. Otherwise, I think they are a great item.

i like the automatic feature . if you were to fall and hit your head on the side of the
boat going out . You may not come around enough to manually blow it up in time
to save you. they are loud when they go off but they will air up very quickly.

Thanks everyone for your recommendations. We are going with the Onyx24 A/M. It looks like Academy has the best price on them.
