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

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.  Imported.

Favorite Features

  • Constructed of Gelfoam® providing maximum protection without the bulk.
  • Ventilation holes covered in Coolmax® fabric for the utmost ventilation and wicking power
  • Active joint design prevents the vest from riding up
  • Lumbar support
  • Mobile phone pocket
  • Easy zip front with buckle closure
  • Outer cover is machine washable
  • Perfect for all riding whether out hacking, conquering a three day event, and anything in between!

    Charles Owen JL9 Vest is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits great I bought this after going off my horse. My helmet saved my life but doctors were concerned about other bleeding because e I am on a blood thinner called Eliquis which can take up to a week to clear your body. There is no wayto reverse it like Coumadin. I had severely bruised my ribs and lower back but fortunately that was all. I was encouraged to quit trail riding, which I am not ready to do. After much review I decided this vest would be a good protective option for any possible future falls. It fits great and does not appear to be overly hot or as cumbersome as I thought it would be. So far, I am very happy with my choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from protective vest I am an older rider,who does not bounce well anymore. After much research decided on this vest.thought it would be bulky ,but was pleased with the fit and availible adjustments. Rode twice in it makes me feel a lot safer

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and not hot I wear a helmet - always - and had to replace it many times after a fall - so why not a vest? Too many friends with broken ribs and punctured lungs so I tried it and love love it. It is comfortable, easy to fit and actually gives you better posture. Just like my helmet there is no excuse for not wearing it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits great, expect it to be stiff at first but great coverage!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable on Hot Days Runs shorter than the Tipperary models which is nice for shorter torso riders. Has a nice chest shape.
