Inflatable Air-Vests – Product Overview

The Hit-Air air bag vest is an innovative additional protection product for equestrians.  Wear it as the external garment to allow room for inflation.

  • Very light and thin.  Stays out of the way and will hardly be noticeable.  This vest is built with a comfortable open design and gives riders freedom and flexibility of movement.
  • Provides extra protection in case of an unexpected departure from the horse.  It absorbs impact as it cushions the neck, torso, spine and hips with air.
  • High speed deployment.  Vest is quickly inflated.
  • The vest can be integrated into apparel.  It can be worn over a body protector vest for extra protection or it can be worn without one.
  • Easy to put on and easy to take off.  Each size or style allows for a lot of adjustability.
  • There are style choices and color choices. Pick SV2 or LV under size and scroll back up to picture to see the difference.

More information on the Hit-Air air bag vest:

  • One CO2 cartridge is included with vest purchase.
  • A coiled wire lanyard is shipped with the vest too.  This is to create an attachment point to ensure deployment if necessary.
  • If riders try to dismount forgetting to unhook the coiled wire, the tension felt is usually enough of a reminder to do so.
  • Most riders like to hook the coiled wire to a bucking (also known as a pommel or saddle) strap.  They are available for purchase in vest accessories.
