I just want a Neil Pryde Garda life vest VN 9756 XL-XXL(neilprydewaterwear.com)...but no one has it in the USA and even Neil Pryde Maui wont order it ????? "we have no need for that here" aint these guys global? and its products are only sold thru a network of small shops? ...No wonder we use EZZY sails

Pro Motion in Hood River makes a great looking vest. I sail NP stuff too but am frustrated by the prices and difficulty finding a dealer locally. Why not buy another brand ? Confused

Laywers have made it impossible to purchase protection that would prevent a Healthy Law Suit.

Sorry.

Try this:http://sports.shop.ebay.co.uk/Life-Jackets-Vests-/64684/i.html

I've got one I can sell you cheap. It's the wrong size, pretty faded, and covered in nasty rust stains, but otherwise perfect. Cool

I know a few people who got the Neil Pryde High Hook Vest through Delta Windsurf. I'm not sure what the difference is, but I know that there's a lot of cool windsurfing gear that doesn't make it into the US, or that you have to special order and wait for. Good luck.

I've told the NP guys that people want this product... yet it remains difficult to get your hands on one.

Just had a chance to check out Dakine's 2011 collection; they are updating their impact harness to just an impact vest - I've seen the product, it will offer TONS of flotation, and comfortably accommodate your existing harness.

Check out the Isthmus Sailboard ads--they have a NP 4000 in large sizes. May work??

This seems to be a common theme with Neil Pryde. They have been running a web banner ad for Crystal Dzigas, but when I phoned to check her availability they were quite rude to me .... Rolling Eyes
