Well , Ol Dummy me , got on the Lake put my Oynx Self deploying Life Vest, Lit up the Ol Merc and Here we Go , about and hour later , Fired up to outrun the Rain . Got about half way back to the Ramp and the Storm Hit.i never thought about mt Self Deploying Life Vest Till ! Bam! That sucker Inflated and Scared Me Stupid , which is how I felt after I realized the Rain hit the Activation Device that makes it Deploy if you hit the Water by Accident in an Emergency! NeverThought about RAIN! SMH . So if you wear one be sure you don't go out in the rain... Set it to Manual Deploy First....

Yes sir.....I stopped buying them cause there were too many mornings I would launch in the fog and they would go off scaring the chum out of me.

I've feeshed in tha rain & haven't had mine go off yet but after I'm guessing having then a few years the both of mine auto deployed one while it was in my garage & the other while it was in the back seat of my truck....I figured it was just time for me to replace the cartridges anyhow.....other than that mine have been great.....
I'm willing ta bet it deploying while you had it on was quite a surprise....LOL
