Spares? No chance.
The only reason for the change of policy is that the company doesn't have enough pax lifejackets to equip the fleet we have so in their wisdom they have decided to take all of the LJ's off the aircrew and use these for one of the aircraft.

Sweat soaked jackets wouldn't be too much of a concern if we were wearing flying suits but as it's so hot where we are operating, it's short sleeved cotton T-shirts for everyone and it would only take seconds for someone else's sweat to soak through to skin.
