The Lifevest I just purchased do not have the D-Ring to attach Lanyard.
Can I get a good wrist strap that will attach to Lanyard?

thanks

You could put a stainless key chain ring on one of the loops that holds the straps in place on your vest, then just clip the lanyard to it, I use one on my vest to attach a whistle.

I used to use a wrist strap but with the floater on the end of the lanyard (as opposed to the key like older seadoo's) I found it was always bouncing off my knee or the plastic of the seadoo, I just found it annoying...

You can also buy D rings. I bought a bag of 10 for under $5 on the web last year. put the D ring on a strap on the life vest.

That D ring has no way to get on an existing strap, except to thread the strap through it. As long as that is your plan, you're all set.

I have some 1" straps that run vertical on my vests that the horizontal straps run through, these are 1" wide and sewn on the vest. I used this kind of d ring and a couple pair of pliers to install:

yes that is the plan...Lowes has the metal d-rings, but Lowes doesn't have any in stainless steal or plastic.

the Para cord landyard looks cool...thanks for the info.
