Does anybody make a combo like this?

I need a harness and a PFD to use on my new (old) Miracle 20 (S/N 830), and I can't believe these aren't available. I'm worried about compatibility between the two.

Any suggestions?

Hello there.

I have such thing. I bought it a loooong time ago (1987), and I don't think that brand still exists ("Uno Yachting").

It does not comply with local safety rules (it is not approved). The straps tend to get loose.

I'd stick with harness + pfd.

The USCG PFD approval process is difficult and expensive. The market for a combo trap harness / PFD is so small, it's not cost effective for a manufacturer to go through that process - and it may not even be possible with a big steel hook on the front.
