Recall of Point Two ProAir Eventing Inflatable Safety Vests

The makers of the Point Two inflatable safety vests have issued a recall on all vests that inflate in less than 0.1 seconds because the triggering system is starting to crack.  Which is fine, because I don’t think the triggering system that inflates the vest in the event of a fall is very important to rider safety.  I’ll bet the people who paid $750 dollars for the thing are feeling really happy with the Point Two manufacturer right about now.
