SOSpenders autoinflate in rain?

I have worn an older SOS self inflator harness for roughly 10 years now in a range of conditions and it has never inflated. I have heard of self-inflating vests inflating in bad weather but I have not esperienced it. I recently replaced my old one with one of the new SOS units that is made to only inflate when actually underwater.
