  1. Was talking a fellow Niken forum member when conversation stumbled across the Helite airbag vest and how this device had saved his bacon on a few occasions. Very interesting safety technology. And I then stumbled on this article- airbag equipped pants: These Airbag Jeans Could Fashionably Protect Motorcyclists Strapping on a leather suit can protect you from a nasty case of... vest makes sense since a higher percentage of accidents involve some form of back impact/slide according to Fortnine of Canada. Legs also make sense but not sure how easy it is to have the necessary strength in the airbag deploy and not accidentally injure your legs in the process e.g, from riding knee position to fully extended and encased leg upon deployment.
  2. I just purchased a Hit-Air Mottorad-2 Jacket, it has airbags that inflate if you accidentally leave your motorcycle. I live in Iowa and due to the large number of deer in our state we have many vehicle/deer accidents. Two of my riding buddies have hit deer while on their bikes. After watching Ryan FortNine’s video (attached) and reading “maximNikenGT’s” posts on this site I decided to contact Rebecca at Hit-air Moto of South Carolina, 803-528-9165. She is the owner of Hit Air Sport Inc and really knows her product, very helpful and easy to talk to. This jacket replaces my current TourMaster Jacket. I was concerned about the weight of the Hit-Air jacket but it actually weights the same as the old one, right at 5 lbs. I have only worn the new jacket on two rides and it is comfortable. It has vents on the sleeves, chest, and back and I’m sure these will help in warmer weather. I also attached a video of a guy hitting a deer while wearing a Hit-Air vest. He was also wearing a GoPro. He had almost no injuries. The accident happens in the first 30 seconds of the video. Here is Hit-Air’s Motorcycle Line of Jackets and Vests. https://www.hit-air.com/en/motorcycle/lineup/jacket_vest/
