I have the pilot (not the co-pilot) and it seems mine stays in rather well though I haven't tried to crawl into a raft yet. I think I may try use the short elastic bungee from handle around the sheath tip just for an extra precaution. I did notice that if you're not paying attention, when putting it back in it's possible not to fully engage the opposing latches. It stays in until it's bumped sufficiently.
I got the pilot so I could use it for both kayaking and diving. I ordered a replacement sheath from NRS for $5 so I can just transfer the knife from PFD to BCD. Too bad a replacement knife isn't $5!
The co-pilot was too small for a diving glove which is why I went with the big one... that and I have to over compensate for small genitalia.
