Which should I get? rope or vest? let me give you a little background about why im looking into buying either. I want to buy a vest because my life jackets are your regular Canadian Tire life jackets (they're crappy) and they hurt when you fall you see...the lifejackets front and back are not connected except for over the shoulders. Around your stomach there are straps that connect front + back when you fall the straps and the vest shift up and the straps hurt your armpits, and the 2 sides of the front fold over each other so it hurts. And I know your thinking its obiously too large, but I fit right into the weight catagory. so thats for the vest but the rope, well the rope I have is I think too small, its approx. 65ft and I dont know if it is a non stretch rope. Due to the thread on non stretch ropes, and so many people saying it will help so much, I want to see for myself. I've got a grey proline three years old. and it already ripped and the loop where you hook it up to the boat but my dad just tied a knot and I dont know if thats too good either.
