liquid force luxury vest. super snug fit , does not ride up, adds warmth, plenty of float, streamline and good looking.

Have the Neil Pryde High Hook.
Its unobtrusive and dosen't ride up. There is a strap you put under your hook.
I cut the side adjustment straps off mine to reduce on line snag hazards. Has front pocket.
It has good flotation but dunno about impact protection but probably as good as most others.

If you are looking for a life vest jacket maybe you should check this type of LIFE VEST JACKETS. This is totally different then the ones we have in the market. They are not "impact vest" but they will save you in case you are drowning by inflating them. My good friend Jeff Clark who discover Maverick invented this inflatable "Life Vest Jackets". (see picture bellow)
Any way just giving you few more options since I have tried them during big storms in big waves. Very confortable.
