Lightweight and comfortable, HitAir vests are perfect for a wide range of disciplines, from hacking and schooling to more extreme equestrian sports.
They can be easily adjusted for use over jackets and fleeces in winter and t-shirts in the summer months, and the patented design of HitAir vests allows the lower back protection to be neatly folded away, so that it doesn’t interfere with your saddle. The vests inflate outwards (rather than inwards) so there’s no possibility of being winded by the inflation process and they can be worn on their own or over a body protector.
HitAir vests come with a saddle strap, which is attached firmly to the stirrup bars of your saddle. The air vest itself has its own lanyard, which can then be attached to the strap, by a lanyard once you’re in the saddle. In the event of a fall, the inflation of the vest is activated when the rider becomes detached from the horse and the lanyard is pulled from the key ball mechanism. This pierces the CO2 canister, which then causes the vest to inflate in approximately 0.25 seconds.
