Does that vest retract during the ride AND continue locking tighter (like X-Flight at SFGAm and the boomerang at Carowinds)? Or does it retract but not continue locking (like Thunderbird and Banshee)?
I guess another option would be no retraction at all (like the Intamin vests on Maverick, easily the most comfortable of the 3 designs).
These vests were much better than Carolina Cobra or Wild Eagle. They had one position and stayed there. I didn't feel any pain on my collar bone which is my top issue with the vests on some other rides.

I agree but the park can't be happy this has happened 2 straight weekends. The other thing the park could maybe look at is how they load the train. SFNE loads Flashback from back to front, which means that the front row is only occupied if they have a full train. I haven't seen any other park do that so not sure if the weight distribution could be having any impact.
