FYI: just so people know. My weird body position in the photo below was due to me ducking a bird that was heading right for me a spit second before that photo was shot.

Laugh If you are a touch/freely fence sitter *LOL*

If you are looking to try on "kick the tires" on vests and jackets then we will be at the following IMS shows this Fall

Atlanta GA Nov 2 -4th

Dallas TX Nov 9 - 11th

Long Beach CA Dec 7 - 9th

We will have some badges so if you would like to come hand out at the booth let me know. It would be great to have riders who are using the vests available to chat with prospective customers

Wont know if I can get discount tickets till nearer the dates

Is there a way to remove the air bag set up and insert it into or over a summer bike jacket. Would be great to not have to pay twice for the air bag set up. Its protecting nothing hanging in the closet. I have a Motorrad and concerned it will be way to hot in the summer. Just now getting close to having my bike running.

Why not just wear the vest over whatever jacket you would normally wear? I'm just learning about this product, but that was my thought when I first saw it. The vest doesn't seem like it would impede too much airflow over a summer mesh jacket.

I found this report very interesting. I have never considered one of these vests, but I'll take some time and learn more. I sometimes have a very 'involved' commute to and from work.

Guess you missed the last sentence in what I wrote. ] In case anyone else does......... "I already own a Hit Air Jacket"!!! It is the Motorrad style which has been reported to be too hot to wear in Temps over 80 deg. F.

Question is can I remove the airbag setup from my Motorrad jacket and install it over a different jacket in some way similar to other products they sell for wearing the system over a riders favourite jacket. For example maybe purchase a vest from HitAir with no airbag installed orrr???

$18 per Co2 cartridge can get expensive riding dirt

all Co2 cartridge internal pressures are the same, difference is size/amount of C02 inside and if tip is threaded or not. 5lb bottle of Co2 has the same internal pressures as 20 gram cartridge. temperature changes internal pressures.

does anyone have a closeup pic of C02 cartridge used and dimensions?

I ordered and tested these and they do NOT inflate the vest fast enough. Thank you for taking the time to post though.

I sent sample cartridges to EVERY CO2 manufacturer here in the US and not one of them will produce the cartridges in the specifications we need. I only found 1 company in India and 1 in Taiwan who would produce them. Shipping costs are still the same HIGH

No way to remove the airbag from the jacket sorry.

I usually suggest the vest to anyone who already has multiple jackets that they want to wear. After 34 years riding I have a cupboard full of jackets so I just throw my MLV vest over which ever jacket I am wearing at the time

There is no way to remove the airbag from the jacket and "put" it into a vest, sorry.

please in future products make this a feature. That way one can use the same airbag, CE armor etc. in one, two or three of your jackets (one per season?)
