|"Imagine if your suit is defective or no longer works how expected -- locks up while you're in the middle of some activity (if you're wearing one, obviously dangerous activity) and you fall off a cliff or break your neck! Scarry... but I'm 100% sure it would do more good then bad."

This could very well protect everything that goes bump...day or night."
