UPDATE - FEBRUARY 2010:
I am still using this jacket every time I ride my motorcycle. I have been happy with the quality. Upon finding that Hit-Air is now offering an upgraded keyball mechanism which is supposed to decrease the full inflation time to only about 120 milliseconds, I decided to make a new video testing both my old mechanism for the first time since July 2006 and then after the new keyball upgrade. There was absolutely a noticeable difference with the new upgraded mechanism. The picture below shows how the new mechanism physically creates a larger hole in the CO2 cartridge upon firing:
The CO2 cartridge on the left was fired with the new mechanism and the one on the right was the old system. Notice how much larger the hole created is with the new keyball mechanism.
Here is the new test video:
