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'!).

Engineered to give you total confidence in your upper body protection, the Kontakt 5 meets the latest and most comprehensive 2009 body protector safety standards. A slim line appearance is achieved through tapered shoulders and rounded chest protection panels. Ventilation holes are in Coolmax fabric for superior breathabilty and comfort. The spinal Grip technology prevents the garment from riding up and allows the rider to maintain freedom of motion.

Meets safety standards EN13158:2009 and BETA 2009 Standard Level 3

Machine washable.

    Charles Owen Kontakt 5 Body Protector is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Offers excellent protection but heavy, bulky. After being seriously injured last year due to my horse spooking thanks to snow and ice falling off the arena roof, I thought it wise to invest in a good body protector. Unfortunately, this particular vest proved to be too heavy and bulky for me. I have no doubts that it would provide great protection, but I was unable to comfortably put my arms down by my side, and I felt somewhat claustraphobic once strapped in. In order to get a snug fit, I had to loosen the sides before putting the vest on, zip it up, & I then required the assistance of my husband to pull the sides to the front to tighten them snuggly with the velcro. I found the vest to be simply too heavy & bulky. Felt like my Marine son's flak jacket. Too bad. Back it goes. Going to try another type. If you're wondering, I am not a heavy person, nor am I big busted. I am an average size, medium, about ladies 8.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vest- ridiculous delivery time Minnow and I just started eventing this season and I absolutely love this vest. It makes me feel safe, but it's not bulky at all and fits perfectly (it is very adjustable). My only issue is how long it took to actually get to me. The timeframe was listed as 2-3 weeks for delivery and it was closer to 5. Almost didn't make it in time for my first schooling.
