One of the guys in my riding group wears one. He says we can pull the pin to set it off if we agree to buy him a new CO2 cartridge (less than $30). We agreed but we wanted him to have it on and he refused. We remain at an impasse.

Shabba,

I'll contribute $1 if he agrees to pull the pin :D


Jokes aside, a version of these in now being marketed to Olympic skiers.
