I just became intrigued with the straight jacket escape. When learning to escape is it better to use a gimmicked jacket or a real one??

Get a real jacket. It takes very little extra effort and you can safely have it examined

Yes, I am in the process of looking for one, but I haven't found one for a good price. and I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted yet? You have any suggestions??

Great prices, quality jackets. I have one from them, it is really good. It is one of their originals, before they had all of the different styles and options.

Get a real one. SJ's are REALLY not that hard to get out of.

My first jacket was a regulation Posey and it's what I've used ever since.

Definitely check out Cannon's Great Escapes for a great selection of jackets...and if you purchase a new jacket from them you get a price break on Jay's DVD teaching you how to escape from it!

When buying a jacket should you get the same size as your shirt size, or should you get a size larger???

Everyone recommends a size larger, but mine is a size too small, but I have absolutely no problem liberating myself from it.

My first jacket was two sizes too small. Every time I used it, the circulation to my arms was cut off, and they were numb for a couple of days.

My thoughts are that you should not get a larger size jacket...while that may facilitate and easier escape for you, you have to remember that the audience will also see that the jacket is too big and therefore conclude that it must be easy to get out of. I always cringe when I see someone do a straitjacket escape with a jacket that they are just swimming in...

I agree . Do not get one too large. It does look a little silly. Even if using a real jacket, there are other ways of gaining room or slack to help in your escape with a jacket that is made to fit you properly.

Though, one needs to learn how to deal with all types of jacket.

That is where I got my strait jacket from. They have some really good products. I got one in my shirt size, and it is perfect. I highly recomend them.

Glad to hear. I bought a mailbag escape from them and have been very pleased. The straight jacket is next on the list.
