Most of the people riding at Badminton 3DE this year were wearing them, saw several people fall off, and the jacket inflated and did it's job. Quite a lot of people are using them as body protectors these days, I was thinking about getting one!
The main 'fault' with them is that if you forget to unhook the strap when you dismount the jacket will inflate. They don't inflate if you don't part company with the horse, which is why you have to wear an ordinary body protector under one for competing.
