SOSpenders autoinflate in rain?

I had the salt bobin slowly deteriorate and the SOSpender auto inflated while hanging on a hook in the head....scared the sh&t out of the admiral, and I was glad I wasn''t in it. Got a replacement kit and broke the very fragile little "pin" that holds the manual inflate handel in place. If I was a conspiracy thinker I''d say it''s all designed to promote the sale of 30+ dollar kits......Still, it''s better than a bulky type II or I.
