    Banyan Pilot Shop at FXE in Fort Lauderdale usually has a good selection on display.

    Any part of your over-water part considered "for hire" ? As to high quality most aircraft type TSO gear is top quality and used by Part 135 ops but is expensive.

    If going the aircraft TSO gear route there a number of them in FL. You might even be able to pick up some used stuff at a good price. Try searching "aircraft survival equipment Florida" .

    I’d been looking into this for a trip into the Bahamas. We have some single cell vests already but no raft. New rafts are very pricey, there are places that will rent them which is he route I expect to take. Best I’ve found so far is this at $35/day. Others may know a better option/rate.

    I've been told somewhere at KFPR rents for 125/week but I haven't seen it listed on any website. Might have to call the FBOs to find out if that's the case.
