Novel idea. Could be useful, don't know if I'd wear one, mainly because of the cost and the fact that I would constantly forget about it and set it off. I'd probably just absentmindedly pull it.
I know safety first, and I'm not being vain, but it would be kind of hilarious though. I can just imagine my local pony club competitions, with all these kids falling off their horses (as they always seem to do) and then puffing up like huge coloured marshmallows!
Oh and the embarrassment. I always feel so embarrassed when I fall off - it would be ten times worse if I had just fallen on my bottom and then my life jacket puffed up in the middle of the arena, and I had to waddle after my horse, with my sore bottom and looking like a marshmallow.
