We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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'!).

Why We Love This

The Outlyne body protector is the new soft and flexible body protector for women. Styled with a zip-front, Outlyne's design ensures women of different shapes and sizes can comfortably fit into a standard-sized body protector. Using the UltraFlex technology, the Outlyne vest molds around the body without relying on body heat to soften.

Designed for females of all shapes and sizes, the Outlyne is the latest body protector from Airowear. It has been developed through years of scientific research into how a body protector should fit the female figure. Outlyne combines maximum protection and unrestricted movement with a perfect fit and super soft flexibility.

Airowear is now breaking the concept that single-paneled body protectors are rigid, inflexible and uncomfortable! The revolutionary Outlyne body protector used the latest hi-tech materials which absorb and spread impact, thereby lessening the injury sustained from a fall or kick. Ultraflex technology is cleverly structured so Outlyne can spread around the torso, molding comfortably to the contours of the body.

Airowear's combination of Ultraflex technology with lightweight and perforated materials creates the ultimate in comfort for body protection.

The Outlyne body protector offers the maximum level of protection by fully meeting EN13158:2009 and BETA 2009 Standard Level 3. Airowear were the first and second to conform to BETA’s current safety standard. Outlyne is annually retested to give you peace of mind that the body protectors are consistently meeting the latest safety standards.

    Airowear Outlyne Body Protector is rated 4.4828 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What I Wanted I'm a senior western trail rider, and with osteopenia decided I wanted a bit more protection while out on the trails. I reviewed the pros and cons of the inflatable versus the non-inflatable body protectors. I decided to go with non-inflatable and, based on customer reviews, decided upon the Airowear Outlyne. Next was deciding on what size to order. Again, based on helpful advice from other customers and the sizing chart, I calculated that I needed size L3 Slim. This proved correct- what a relief! I'm 5'6", 122 lbs. I hope this info helps you decide what size works best for you. I will say that the sizing chart and the vest's label show a slight difference in chest measurements. That is, the sizing chart lists the L3 Slim chest measurement of 32-34", but the vest's label lists a chest measurement of 32.5-35". It's important to remember to loosen the side velcro straps before you put the vest on, and before you take it off; this makes it easier to zip and unzip. At first I forgot to do that, and wondered why it was hard to zip! Next I wore it around the house to get used to it. I've now worn it on approx. six rides- all 2 hours long. No problem in the western saddle; the back of the vest does not hit the cantle. No problem at walk, trot, or canter. I've even had the vest on while grooming and tacking up- no problem with that. Safety is important to me, so I'm motivated to use it. I expect in time it'll seem completely normal to me- like wearing a helmet. Today was cold, so I wore a long underwear top, light weight turtleneck, light weight polar fleece pullover, then the Airowear Outlyne, and then a light weight parka over everything. In the warmer weather I'll just wear the Airowear Outlyne over a shirt. Hope this info helps you decide.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable protective vest, but flaw in velcro I had the Outlyne vest and wore it for about a year and a half and on one or two occasions it saved my ribs from a fall. After about a year and a half of use (which I understand is a long time) horse bucked me off after an overly exuberant jump. Unfortunately I was able to pull the velcro lose with my left arm as I was falling and ripped the vest off on that side falling directly on my back and ribs. I think the velcro end was pulling up and I caught it as my arm slid back in an attempt to tuck and roll. It may have been a fluke, but scared me enough that I now wear the CO Kontakt 5 which has a better front closure system, though I must admit, isn't as comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Felt Safe! I've honestly only used my vest once since I got it in March (been a rough summer). The first time I ordered it, it was very short and with the help of a SmartPak rep I determined I needed to order the long style. I don't have an exceptionally long torso, so I'm curious how the other style(s) would fit anyone. For my first (and so far only) cross-country schooling, it felt snug, and safe. I was a nervous wreck, and at times it felt a little too constricting, but I know I'd rather feel that way then the other way around (and I may have continually tightened it throughout the day...). But I love it, and can't wait to REALLY try it out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you are Hard to Fit , This is your vest ! Worth every penny. I was exhausted after looking and trying to find a safety vest that would feel and fit me comfortably. This vest is the answer. Short with a short waist ..not a problem. I have to admit it seemed like it was to thick at first but it does soften up once in warmer temps too. I'm a fair weather rider only so I do not know how it feels in cold weather.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this vest! I have tried many to get the right one. First the cheap version which never softened and felt like a board. Then the Tipperary, which while looks great and is comfortable, did not protect much in a fall. Ribs are STILL sore, grrr... I then ordered the CO Kontakt, which is a nice vest but felt too bulky to me and hard to soften even with body heat. Last, I ordered the Airowear Outtlyne. Oh my gosh, I love this. It gets soft fast and is comfortable. It is better for a woman's build, but not if really busty . I am a C and I have to squish the sides when I zip it up to kind of shape it to me, and then it's great. Very comfy, can forget it's there. A huge difference from the CO to this is that under the arm, the CO just crossed all the materials - full thickness. Where the Outlyne crosses itself under the armpits, it is half thickness, so in crossover it's just one full thickness, rather than a double thickness as the others have been. Makes a HUGE difference in comfort - I can actually put my arms down, lol. I will say that is it hot in warm weather, but they pretty much all are. My husband calls it my bullet-proof vest, but I really am happy with this purchase!
