As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

A better vest for a better ride.

The Charles Owen JL9 Vest provides the feel of gel with the performance of foam. You'll feel free and flexible, instead of restricted and encased. The gel is much less rigid and molds more effectively to the body, especially in the ribs, for an optimal fit. This lightweight vest has an active joint, allowing the ribcage to expand without restriction. Certified BETA level 2, the JL9 vest provides the maximum in protection without the unwelcome bulk.

    Charles Owen JL9 Vest is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Nice Vest! This is my first vest and I couldn't be happier with it! This vest is really comfortable to ride in and isn't restrictive at all. The vest is amazing how it hugs to your body. I was concerned that I had too much room around my ribcage. I think I will just have to wear layers during the colder days and tighten up the sides on warmers days when I ride in a polo shirt. I do think that this vest is a little hot, but I tend to be hot blooded. Overall this vest was a big hit at my barn!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second review! After riding in this vest several times, I absolutely love it. I was a little concerned about having a little extra room around the ribcage, but with layers it fits beautifully.It was a warm day, and I did not find the vest hot or uncomfortable at all. I totally love this vest!This is an awesome vest- its comfortable, adjustable, cool, and not restrictive.I highly recommend this vest!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Vest! So far vest shopping has proved to be both difficult and annoying. I have tried multiple vests and have either had fit issues or comfort problems. I first tried the AiroWear Outlyne vest, which I totally loved but they didn't make them in a size that worked for me.I decided to try the JL9 out of desperation and I am pleasantly surprised. Its very comfortable after its warmed up, and does not hinder your body at all when jumping or galloping. I found that although it was a little hotter than my Tipperary, it was by no means uncomfortably hot or miserable. I actually really liked it!My only hesitation is the fit. The length is perfect, but its a little big around the ribcage even on the tightest velcro allowance. But I am just difficult to fit.Its an exceptional vest, for a great price! I highly recommend it.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
