Question Auto Inflatable Vests

In a seperate post, catmando spoke of an auto-inflatable life vest. Does anyone know if these work well and if so, where can they be purchased?

My 8yr son wears one. We never have inflated it we bought it at west marine. The gentlemen told us they work great. Don't wash your boat or get caught in a rain storm with them.

Thanks very much for the replies. I already use some Tiger Performance safety gear (air systems) but didn't know about these units.

KiloKat,
Remember, Auto Inflatables should ONLY be used in an open cockpit boat. Never ever use these in a canopy boat. Open cockpit, they're fine.

Just FYI...

Ben - Thanks but these are for the race/pleasure 40 (open cockpit). I still use only your jackets in the race boats! By the way, did JT order two more silver vests yet?

Dave, Yes I did speak with John last week and have order the (2) more, just like the last two w/ the front pockets. Did you race with the new ones yet? Hope all is well, and I will be calling you in just a little while.
