Dainese is set to release its new air-bag-equipped suits by 2010 - a full 10 years after development of the system began.
Dainese's D-Tec system is the first airbag from a major protective bike cloting manufacturer, although small companies have released jackets with cruder activation systems.

saved my life!
I bought an airbag jacket jacket from wairbag (http://www.wairbag.com/) at the Excel Bike Show earlier in the year.
I had the misfortune of coming off my bike a couple of weeks ago. I was doing about 60 MPH when a car pulled out on me and i simply had nowhere to go. I managed to avoid the car but came off the bike.
The airbag jacket inflated and absorbed all of the impact and i simply stood up and walked away. Unfortunately my bike was in bits!
I can honestly say I owe my life to my airbag jacket! I would highly recommend them to anyone and would not consider riding without one again.

How Long To Wait!!
Surely it is in the companies interest to pull their finger and get one out there!
Especially with all the media coverage of late.
Put me down for one!
I wanna be the michelin man!

I agree with gryczon
There's no protection lower down around the waist/ kidney area and the pelvis and legs need some padding too.
Well impressed with the speed of activation though.
