Not sure what to think. Safety products are always a great idea but I wold imagine the cost would prohibit most from investing in this jacket. That said I would guess there will be a market for it among racers.Carrie said:

I think these jackets have some type of tether that activates the little party popper jacket bladders.
So, the grizzled, knarley rider pulls up to the local Starbucks. Heads turn in appreciation of his chrome-clad custom cruiser and the thunder of his revving engine. With a defiant grin, he swings a leg over the bike, surveying his appreciative onlookers, when,
POP, Pfffft . . .
. . .the airbag on his jacket deploys because he was too fukkin busy posing and blipping the throttle to remember to unhook the tether, and now he looks like the Michelin Man.
One leather-clad Harley rider puts down his iced mocha double frappacino latte and says, reprovingly;
"Glad he's riding a Vic".
Of course, our hero, now totally discombobulated by the airbag deployment, forgets to put down his kickstand . . .
. . . to be continued.
