AFAIK hammer lifejackets have the gas cylinder hidden inside the inflatable bladder (downside being you can't see it to check for corrosion) whereas normal salt tablet types have the cylinder exposed.

Hammer mechanisms are also usually yellow. So open up the bottom of the jacket (velcro or zip) and take a look.

I sell the Crewsaver Freedom 150n Hammer Auto for 72.00 each for customers who have done courses. I can get all the Crewsaver Range as was appointed as an agent earlier this year. Hamer Action 150 Crewfit = 85.95 each.
It comes down to personal choice but if crewsaver are good enough for the RNLI then they are enough for me.
There has been some concern over the hammer action which has been voiced by th US CG but I have not seen any evidence of a problem.
I have either Manual Gas or Hammer action. I have had the Tablet activated once go off in lockers etc.

Sorry to be a lifejacket 'sad-ie' but you can tell it is not Hammar as the pull toggle is round with a cord rather than the square one you get with Hammar with a square rubber 'cord'
